Tears of the Gods

Kind of Event

This petrified resin has been in great demand since the Stone Age. Both pearls and figures were created from it. One of the oldest sculptures in northern Germany is the elk by Weitsche, which was designed around 14,000 years ago. In the Bronze Age, the amber trade experienced a new dimension. Baltic amber was negotiated over many stations as far away as Egypt. Raw amber, however, is rather inconspicuous. It only gets its magical appearance through grinding and polishing. 

In this program, an individual piece of jewellery is made from raw amber using Stone Age or Bronze Age means that can be taken home.
