Description
When the classical world was in full flower, this magnificent bracelet adorned the wrist of some ancient beauty. Decorated with bold abstract geometry, its loop terminates in the stylized head of a ram, which would originally have confronted its mirror image. One thinks of the fabled golden ram whose fleece was the object of Jason's quest. As with much that survives from antiquity, this lovely jewel offers only its sculptural form, our imagination restores the missing pieces of its long history. - (FJ.0080)
