Paula says - "You may have heard of Ledger Art, where Indians used the materials at hand, such as old ledger paper from forts and missions, on which to paint and draw. Well, this is Cigar Box Art, a creative repurposing of vintage cigar boxes by Lakota artist Alan Monroe.This box has a large capacity so will hold quite a few treasures or a good amount of sage and other smudging supplies.

"A Certificate of Authenticity is available upon request, just add a note in the form when you order."
