We the People


by Grace Gunning


"I made this when I first heard of the travel ban. The women wear their hijab when the box is parallel to the ground. Tilted, gravity pulls the thousand beads of their outfit down revealing the ethnicity of we the people. A $5.00 donation goes to the ACLU each time this is sold and a card comes with it saying “When you buy this WE THE PEOPLE Reliquary Box a donation has been made to the American Civil Liberty Union. You are part of that support. Thank You.” -Grace Gunning

Each box is signed and dated and comes with a card inside telling a bit about me and the boxes and a definition of reliquary (a receptacle for an old treasure).
