"This neck ornament was built over a wax matrix. Here we see a fairly massive hollow form which would only be possible using the electroforming process. Surely I realize that this could have been cast, but if it were and if it were solid too, it would be very uncomfortable because of its weight."
The original object was scanned as a TIFF file on a Nikon Coolscan 4000 film scanner at approximately 4000 pixels on the long dimension. A 300 ppi JPEG file limited to 1024 pixels on the long dimension was then added to the CONTENTdm database.
