Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures

"Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures" will be on display at The Met this weekend. I chose this piece because it is something that truly takes talent to create. I can never imagine having the skill to carve such detail into the wood in this piece. In the picture are rosary beads carved for King Henry VIII and his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. I think this piece is very beautiful because of all the detail it has and also what it represents.
