Cigar Boxes: Above and Beyond

We've all seen decorated cigar boxes, but these, which were decorated by artists from all over the world, break the mold and are truly Above and Beyond.

From boring, utilitarian boxes to art

Candace
U.S.

This cigar box is starting a new life as a book cover. It opens to a recessed "shrine" with a Sun Goddess idol inside the back/bottom of the box.

Claudette Hunter
Yokohama, Japan

Who would have thought that rust could be so elegant? Both boxes are decorated with rust and gold foil.

Janine Anderson
Australia

Collage elements give this box a very "artsy" look.

Juliann Wasisco AKA "Valobra"
U.S.

By stacking 2 different sized boxes and gluing them together, Juliann made a very unique 2-story box. While cigars are a Western fashion, an Asian inspired cigar box makes a wonderful piece of art.

Kelly Kilmer
U.S.

A stunning cigar box purse is made from decoupage and hardware. The purse has 2 handles, one is the drawer-pull handle and the other is a chain.

Lorrie Oreck AKA Professor Lorrie
U.S.

Decoupage done well has raised this box from its humble origins to a work of art.

Pamela Allen
U.S.

Hardly recognizable as cigar boxes, these sculptural pieces defy the trends.

Terry Lee Getz
U.S.

These very elaborate pieces stretch the limits of cigar box art.
