On May 25th, at 9 p.m. EST, the History channel premiered Texas Rising, a ten-part series which depicts the Texas Revolution following the events of the Alamo.
In commemoration of the series and those who participated in its production, the Alamo Endowment, an organization focused on raising money to restore the historic Alamo, held an event dubbed “Texas Honors” at which sterling silver badges branded with the event’s title were rewarded to twelve of the recipients involved in the production of the series. Among the recipients were actors Bill Paxton and Paul Fraser along with Bravo’s “Top Chef” Paul Qui who has been deeply involved in raising money for the restoration.
Tasked with designing a display for these awards, On Display crafted a box who’s base, lined with sleek black fabric, was designed to comfortably house one of the medallions. Under its lid, a plaque commemorating the event was embedded. The display, as can be seen below, was constructed from genuine Mesquite wood, specially ordered from the state of Texas.
