1. The name of the artifact

I decided to call my artifact the ‘PortiBox’.

2. Photo’s of the artifact

Below you’ll find two photo’s of my object. The top photo is the pencilbox on its side, so it can be placed in my desk furniture. The second photo shows the pencilbox standing up. Each tray is removable. You can see that in the first photo. In the second photo it’s completely removed.
