Templar Box by Theophilia Templar Box by Theophilia
Templar Box
December 2014
Pyrography
About 3.5 inches tall, 5.25 inches wide, 8.5 inches long


This is a Templar Box I wood-burned as an art trade with dashinvaine. On the top is the Sigil of the Knights Templar, (Sigil of the Knights of Christ) with the motto of the Knights Templar written on the top in Latin ("Not to us Lord, not to us, but to your name give the glory."). On the front are two saints: The Virgin Mary with the Christ Child and St. Catherine of Alexandria, with a Jerusalem cross between them. On the back are another two saints: St. Mary Magdalene and St. Cecilia, also with a Jerusalem cross between them. On the left side of the box there's a cross with the words "In hoc signo vinces" ("In this sign you shall conquer"). On the right side is another cross with the IC XC NIKA which means "Jesus Christ Conquers."

I was just admiring this on here, having happened across this deviation again, when I realised I could turn my head and admire the real thing...

Hahah, I actually just finished another Templar box this weekend! I'll probably post it sometime soon, once the polyurethane is dry. :)

I believe so. I can check my old e-mails in my inbox but if I don't end up having it I'm sure I could always just note/e-mail you.

Beautiful piece, another name for the cross is Peace Cross because it can't be used for torture. Thank You

I did , an excellent artist too !Are you formally trained? - your work is very advanced .Even your comments and biographies are meticulous and I always have this image of some super intelligent cleric working away in some 12th century monastery surrounded by oak and candlelight !!!!!

Hideo Kojima called, he says your game's plot is far-fetched and its franchise has gone on too long.

That would be my point, yes.

If someone says "Liberace called, he said your outfit's gaudy", it means your outfit is freaking gaudy.

All of a sudden I'm thinking of the Templar Knights. Reminds me of a box that holds something valuable

Wow! This is going to be a thing to treasure, possibly even more than its destined content. My Templar jewellery samples (Talismans of the Knghts Templar, from Eastgate Resource, if I may plug) will look very good in it, too, at least when the lid is open.
