Bengali Wedding Magic Explosion Box

Hello friends...

Some of you may have seen this 

This Explosion box turned out to be more beautiful than what I had in mind...

This magic explosion box was made on order for a bengali bride to be. It will be used to hold a scroll with an index list for all the gift items called the "tatwo suchi".

The colour combination of this magic explosion box is inspired by the traditional bengali saree.The bride to be wanted this colour combination along with red roses & a place for the "tatwo suchi".

The photographs don't do justice to this box.. It looks much more majestic & beautiful in real.. :)

Please ignore the glare in the photographs.... The tube light decided to get fused when I was setting up everything for the photoshoot... & I had to depend on my camera flash & the gold portions are really difficult to capture... specially with the flash...  :(
