My Relic was my ipod, but more the Music on my ipod, I used clear acrylic Paint to make a cool brush texture over the lyrics on the inside of the box and the pictures on the outside, symbolizing that you see the band itself on the outside, but the meaning is with in the lyrics, and you have to look inside to see the meaning of that band, so I chose the most artistic band I liked which was the Gorillaz, and chose some songs I liked and that mean something to me.
The relic of this sculpture is a tiny pillow representing comfort and childhood. Growing up I used to take a pillow and blanket up a special tree in my backyard and take naps in it. The roots of this tree are protecting my memory from dangerous, unknown things in the future.
