Stone topped acacia salt box with Lascaux Reindeer painting

Stone topped acacia salt box with Lascaux Reindeer painting

This is an interpretation of one of Reindeer of Lascaux as I imagine it might have looked freshly painted 15,000 years ago. Burnt umber paint is blown onto the stone, and the outline is emphasized by scraping lines (sgraffito) into the surface; the same techniques used by prehistoric artists. 


The Arizona sandstone color is a warm terracotta. I hand cut the stone in to a circle, so the edge is a little irregular. I don't usually put varnish on my stone paintings, but I put a light invisible spray of archival varnish on this stone so that it may safely be wiped clean and withstand gentle handling. The stone begs to be touched!


  • About the box...

    The acacia wood box has a one-handed twist opening with a magnetic closure. The box has a 3.5" diameter and is 2.67" tall (9 cm dia. by 6.7 cm tall). The space inside the box is 2.75" diameter and is 1.5" tall (7cm dia. x 4.3 cm). It's signed on the bottom to keep up the illusion of being an ancient artifact.

    This salt box comes filled with a bag of organic sea salt.
