Photo Hunters: Metal

PSHunt

Metal

Our humans saw many beautiful metal objects at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, but sadly, you aren't allowed to take photos there anymore. This is to protect the many priceless objects in the museum's collection. However, when they were at the Egyptian Museum in Berlin last summer, they were able to take photos (just no flash) and they took these photos of some beautiful gold jewelry.

Happy Easter Weekend to all those who celebrate!

Wow! Is that a belt in the 2nd picture? I can't imagine someone wearing that all day. Must be pretty heavy!
Happy Easter to both you and owners :)

I like jewelries. Though I prefer silver, gold has its own mark of elegance. I like the band on the second picture. Lovely.

Beautiful work. I an just imagine you two wearing a collar similar to the bangle (not as thick and heave of course) Happy weekend

Randi said...

Happy Easter [or happy weekend, if you don't observe the holiday], and if you can, drop by for my metal interpretation!!! See if you can guess what it is.

Happy Easter Dragonheart and Merlin. Thank you for showing us the beautiful Egyptian jewelery. They would be beautiful to wear too. FAZ

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, those are great pieces. Is that a belt? Mom thougtht it might be a bracelet. Does the flash of cameras damage the gold somehow? Is that why there is no photos allowed.
Thanks for these photos. They are beautiful.
Happy Easter to you!
