Book of Nails

A mound of old rusted nails set in a book-box lined with precious gold, seems an unlikely combination, setting in place vivid contrasts; polished and tarnished, good and evil, eternal and that which decays. Another obvious connection would be that the piece references the container from which the soldiers pulled the spikes to nail Jesus to the cross. The cover has one large antique floor nail and four smaller ones that again allude to the crucifixion.
