Photographer's Note

....one more photo from Moesgaard Museum . This time I show you some Bronze Age jewelry.
During the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age ( about 600 - 400 BC ) it was a widespread custom to sacrifice bronze necklaces .
Many of the rings are solid and clumsy,and it has not been a pleasure to wear them.
They were likely used for ceremonial purposes . Very often similar rings two by two were sacrificed in the bogs.

In my workshop photos I will show you Moesgaard Museum , nesteled in the idyllic hills south of Aarhus.
