22nd June - 22nd July
The traditional symbol for Cancer is the crab. The crab on this box is a beautifully detailed silver one, nestling in the rock pool of this fabulous Pre-Raphaelite painting by Waterhouse. Two silver lilies (one of the flowers associated with Cancer), art deco style, frame one side of the picture.
The box itself is painted bronze and has been distressed to give a vintage feel. It measures 16x16x8 cm and has a metal clasp and hinges with antique bronze coloured corners.
The interior of the box is painted silver (one of the colours associated with Cancer), and the base has a sprinkling of sparkly confetti. Inside the lid the Cancerian constellation is set out in tiny antique bronze stars, across a background of the night sky.
The box tag has the word "imaginative" written on it (one of Cancer's attributes), and a sun charm is attached.
As with all Sisters of the Moon Memory Boxes, this box comes with a numbered authentication card. The Zodiac Boxes are numbered by sign. There is also a card enclosed with a list of the main attributes for this sign.
