    Bonsoir Jonathan,
    C’est un très beau reliquaire , les bas reliefs en stéatite se marient bien avec le bois de la structure. Un bel exemple de création dans le respect de la tradition.
    félicitations pour cette pièce et pour tot votre travail.

    This is a beautiful piece of work Jonathan.

    1. Thank you, Paul. Don’t forget to send me pictures of your experiences with steatite.

  4. This also reminds me of a Merovingian example, the Teuderigus Reliquary: http://www.westga.edu/~rtekippe/slides2201/teuderigus.html

    1. Very interesting piece. I had never seen it before. It is interesting to see the Merovingians as being both deeply under the influence of insular Christianity yet always wanting to create that Roman connection. We see the same drive in Carolingian Christianity.
