Large Cylinder Seal: Time is the Moving Image of Eternity

Wherefore he resolved to have a moving image of eternity, and when he set in order the heaven, he made this image eternal but moving according to number, while eternity itself rests in unity; and this image we call time.

-Plato

made of: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The symbol encrusted cylinder (without bail) is 1.75 inches high and almost an inch wide.
chain: The sterling silver chain is just over 28 inches long, and includes a sterling lobster clasp. Please let me know if you would prefer a different length.
process: The enameling process for making this pendant is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
