I create reliefs with aluminium foil

The technique of decorating metal surfaces with relief designs is known since antiquity.

The craftsman created reliefs by pressing sheets of metal onto a die with a decorative pattern that he had previously made for this purpose. In the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki you can see many gold objects decorated with this technique.

Would you like to know more about some of the gold objects in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki and the technique of their ectopic decoration?
