My lucky little car shrine. Sits on the dash.
The shell is from a wonderful low country weekend, the clay oil lamp is from my pic pick win, the wooden Ganesha “Remover of Obstacles” is from India, the crystal is from the Dixie Gem, tiger’s eye from China, moss agate from my brother from another mother.
