Buddha, Can You Spare A Dime?

At Buddhist temples throughout Nepal, there are usually donation boxes scattered about. What makes them interesting are the old-school designs.

A typical donation box, all "hip" with a hip roofline. Nice patina. More of a homemade lockbox, complete with guardian.



An Al Capone version, heavy, imposing, but with a tiny slot for coins. To change it up, let's try blue for the box.
