That looks very cleverly engineered Tom.
Tom Wilson: I think it probably started out as a simple flat strip of gold, which was then twisted - but VERY carefully smile

Just think of all the work that went into this!
Tom Wilson: Yes, finding the gold, smelting, etc. Then pouring to get a flat strip - hammering to the right thickness, then twisting carefully to get the effect smile
This shows skill of a high order Tom
Tom Wilson: It does indeed, Bill.

Lovely pre-gawd art, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is, Ray - the belief is that they worshiped the sun and perhaps gold was precious for that reason?
Wonderful with this light play Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.
It is beautiful.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Mary.
Vrey nicely displayed with the shadow play Tom
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Janet
If only it were possible to meet the artisans who created these gorgeous pieces of art, Tom. You've presented this very artistically, as well.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Beverly - it would be interesting indeed - even if only to find out what form of language they spoke - the language must have been pretty sophisticated by then.
That is a lovely piece of craftsman ship.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Brian!
