“It is a crime to steal a purse, daring to steal a fortune, and a mark of greatness to steal a crown. The blame diminishes as the guilt increases.” – Schiller
A true artist is always looking for ways to expand his skills and create something “bigger” than before. Making a crown would be a test of one’s skills. This crown was not made the easy way by shaping sheets of silver and then joining them together. Instead the whole piece was cast in one go from 2 kilograms of molten silver. Only the cross on top was added later.
