This piece like other our artworks for the Light Bringer Art it changes always at the eye of the observer depending from the light, thanks to its talismans made of metal , gems and gold leaf.
This light effect brings a new dimension to the piece making it even more alive as it is always changing, looking from different angles and depending how the light falls on it.
It really gives the feeling of an ancient mystical object or a relic and it is an object of spiritual value.
