Portfolio > RECENT WORK: RELICS AND RELIQUARIES

This is an antique hand-held surveying level. I incised a grid pattern on the back not unlike what surveyor's used to plot surveys. There is an antique print inside behind the level that shows the surveyor at work. My grandfather used one of these in his work for Bell Telephone in Oklahoma during the Depression.
