Because there is a past, there is a future.

Shrine uses undying materials that have a history of being worshiped by the ancient Egyptians. Shrine is an architectural piece of limestone with carved straight lines and little cave openings in the deep cracks. At one corner, is a piece of smooth lapiz that spins around and makes a tinkling noise. Shrine has a deep shine and is very smooth. There is a sun detailing on the top of the stone. The viewer should be encouraged to play with the lapiz wheel, and run their hand along the cracks in the stone. The viewer can see the piece in whatever way that they do.
