Photographer's Note

The lady on the left side, doesn't she look as if she envied August the Strong for his treasures? Scene from "Neues Grünes Gewölbe" (Green Vault) of August the Strong, displayed in this showcase are some of the numerous ivory sculptures. The small one in front dates back to 1611.

From the homepage of the museum:
"Gold, rock crystal and diamonds seem to want to outshine each other in the treasury of August the Strong, which he built between 1723 and 1730. Today, old and new coalesce in the Grünes Gewölbe at the Residenzschloss: While the Historisches Grünes Gewölbe (Historic Green Vault) allows visitors to immerse themselves in the authentically restored rooms of the treasury, the Neues Grünes Gewölbe (New Green Vault) shows selected exhibits, impressively illuminated behind glass."
