anti smoking shrine

My Mother died of lung cancer about a year and a half ago. She had smoked cigarettes for over forty years and they finally got her. Needles to say, I don't smoke and it kills me that my DH does smoke. I can't seem to get it through his head that smoking may kill him too.


So, being the artist I am, I decided to create a little shrine about the dangers of smoking.



I made the barbed wire by hand out of jewelry wire and many of the parts came from a pack of cigarettes. Click on the pictures to see it larger.
