Repetition and detail help to create this meditation on the nature of beauty. This Silver Filigree cover was originally designed in Germany in the early 1800s. To achieve the gilded motif, a base layer of silver sheets was first die cut, and elaborate grooves were then etched into its surface. Combining the Latin words filum (thread) and granum (seed), "filigree" describes an art form that is a testament to the human drive to ornament.
