Monroe - Lakota Cigar Box Art

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.

Lizard, often referred to as Brother Lizard, is revered by many Native American tribes and considered by some to be a medicine animal. Brother Lizard teaches one to pay close attention to dreams and what they are trying to communicate, for in dreams we sub-consciously process of all the messages received while awake. Brother Lizard is often associated with protection (especially of children), prosperity, renewal, healing, survival and good luck.
