Soul Box

I must thank Juliana Coles and her workbook on "Consulting the Oracle" for introducing me to the idea of "archetypes." Each one of us goes has elements of these personas inside of us, some appearing more than others and at different periods in our lives. The six that I focused on in this piece were: The Innocent, The Orphan, The Wanderer, The Warrior, The Magician, and The Martyr. For each archetype I created a two-sided card with imagery and text that I felt described them. On the back of each card is a pocket with a pull-out tag that I will fill with journaling. The "Soul Box" that houses my archetypes has vintage pattern paper, stamped circles, and 3D letters. I've aged the lid with a bit of distress ink, as well. I love the idea of having created a container that houses within it all the parts of me.
