garden of eden

while at a flea market last week looking for interesting found objects, i discovered this wonderful object- i immediately envisioned this piece in my mind-- a depiction of the garden of eden with the snake coiling out from the tree of knowledge-- i fashioned the snake from jute wrapped with carpet warp and porcupine quills and finished the head of the snake with handmade paper --later a friend identified the object as a mezuzah. after researching it , i find that it is made from stainless steel, handpainted metalic and acrylic paints, swarvoski crystals, glass, and wood -
