Silver Treasures – appliqués of pure silver repoussee in solid walnut frame

Several years ago, Marin decided to create wall ornaments in the style of the Ancient Gold Collection. He created the designs of 12 images inspired from 6th to 3rd century BCE Thracian treasures unearthed in present day Bulgaria. Every design is his unique interpretation of the original artifacts. Each of these works of art is drawn by hand onto a pure silver plate, raised in relief using the ancient technique of repoussé, and mounted in a solid walnut frame.
