Mantelpiece Shrines


Christine Finn wrote an excellent article for the Guardian “excavating” the mantelpiece at her parents’ house.  This is the mantel in my apartment, sitting above a malfunctioning gas heater that serves as the only source of heat.  I thought about creating a flickr group collecting mantelpiece photos, but it looks like someone already did, citing Christine’s article as inspiration.  Cool.

I had my Christmas wreath hanging above it for a while, now it looks a little lonely.  An untended shrine…to what, though?
