Tears of the Gods

Kind of Event

... that's what amber was called in ancient myths. But this petrified resin has been in great demand since the Stone Age. Both beads and figures were created from it. One of the oldest sculptures in northern Germany is the Moose by Weitsche, which was designed around 14,000 years ago. In the Bronze Age, the amber trade experienced a new dimension. Baltic amber was traded through many trading posts as far away as Egypt. However, the raw amber 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.

Cost: Adults €14.00; Children €12.00 (incl. material)
