Leiden

Yesterday Bertus and me went to Leiden, to get some books from the university library there and visit an exhibition about the jewellery of old cultures (Egyptian, Roman, Medieval, ...).

Here are some of my favorite pieces. They aren't all that sharp...






It is amazing to see how timeless all these pieces are.

Yes! It was my favorite piece from the exhibition.
It's a greek headband that was found in a grave.

Fascinating pieces, when you think about their background. I can only agree with the timeless comment.

By the way, I've tagged you! Take a peek at my latest blog post if you want to join the game. :)
