Saint Eustace Footed Box with Lid

The story of St. Eustace tells of a first century C.E. Roman general and his conversion while hunting via a miraculous vision of the crucified Christ between the antlers of a stag. Afterward, Eustace refused to sacrifice to pagan gods during the persecutions under Hadrian, and was consequently martyred by being burned alive inside a brazen bull.

On the lid of this white ceramic footed box, rendered in glowing gold, is Eustace's prophetic apparition. The interior of the box provides safe haven for small objects, and the inside text reads, The World is Bound with Secret Knots.

More information about the conversion of Saint Eustace and the Museum's Athanasius Kircher exhibition can be found here.

Box measures approximately 2 x 2.75 inches with lid.

Kindly hand wash our china and refrain from using in the microwave.
