Because of a move for museums around the world to share their relics with the people of the world I happened to gain access to thousands of 3d scans of ancient artifacts from many countries and long gone empires From Africa to Spain. So as a history buff and a jeweler I saw a great opportunity to share relics and the history behind them. Its a little something really old with a new twist. Remember these pieces are created from the actual 3d image scans of the actual pieces in the museums. Each Museum will be credited where I can.
