Description
Since the dawn of time, great civilizations have adorned their honored dead with radiant gold. The royal tombs of Ur, those of Pharonic Egypt, Bronze Age Mycenae, and ancient Alexandria have all yielded precious golden ornaments untarnished by the passage of centuries. When the classical world was at its height, these delicate blossoms were offered as tokens of eternal love to some unknown beloved.

Each flower is cut from hammered sheet gold. - (FJ.0132)
