Eternity Diptych

This is a new diptych I'm making. Diptychs and triptychs have been created by artists for centuries.
A diptych is any object with two flat plates attached at a hinge. Kind of like a book, religious diptychs were sometimes carried around by travelers and opened up to be venerated when they arrived at thier destination.
