Lay your troubles to rest with these customized mini-coffins

Do you have a pesky person in your life that you would like to be rid of, but don’t want to resort to using a hit man or other illegal means? Instead of killing the bastard, consider destroying your enemy in effigy with the help of one of Joy Olmstead’s miniature coffin boxes. Joy makes a variety of coffins, including ones with a steampunk theme or for ancestral reverence, but I’m just going to share one she customized especially for me.

The interior is lined with nails to ensure that your target does NOT rest in peace. Furthermore, all of the interior sides of the box are decorated with tiny mirrors. I was first introduced to the idea of mirror boxes by Starr Casas. The idea is that your target will be forced to see themselves clearly and understand the harm caused by their own actions. It also helps to contain their toxicity and to reflect it back onto them, rather than allowing it to infect the lives of those around them.

The outside of the box is painted with a lovely punk skull and crossbones motif. For additional security, the coffin is bound with chains and fastened by two crossed nails.

For those squeamish about curses or wishing harm to enemies, you can also use these to contain and remove a negative condition. Or, just get one because it kicks ass as home decor.
