I need to apologize for the quality of these photos.  Getting the photos was not as important as getting the job done.  This was the most complicated shadowbox of my career and it was an honor to do it.

The box contains 2 Purple Heart medals, a signed letter from Franklin Roosevelt, a letter from the War Department and various artifacts from a WWII soldier killed in the line of duty.

The box was challenging because the items are mounted on 4 different planes, using various methods:  every trick in the book.  There are adhesives, photocorners, linen tape, straps, metal hardware and even stitches going on underneath and on the surface of this mat.  

I did not shortchange this design just because it came in during the holiday crunch.

I am proud just to have been asked to do this box and am pleased with the work that was done here.
