THE TALISMEN
/ EXHIBITION


You trace the design atop the lid with a slow, deliberate finger. The light of the full moon spills out over the hall — a forbidden place to all but the souls from ancient times. Were the stories true? Did it matter? The dampness of the night air had already seeped into your clothing an hour ago, yet the discomfort was nothing compared to the electric rush of adrenaline that pulsed through your veins. No one has ever seen the contents of the chest — there were only legends warning of what could be within. What mysteries, what terrors, what traps, blessings, treasures….. no one knows. You swallow hard, muster the courage, and open the lid.

Open Pandora’s Box at your own risk, for inside you may find secrets, creepy crawlies, magical talismans, baubles, spells, spirits, poisons, potions, amulets, demons, dark and deadly items.
