An original publication, focusing on the decorative beauty and symbolic value of gold. The gold of the sacred realm from which the stately figure of Christ emerges in Roman mosaics, the gold of the haloes of Saints, or the sumptuous clothes and jewellery of men and women, reminiscent of a fairytale court. The constant use of gold as a kind of common thread linking together different worlds and experiences, from Medieval, spiritual works to later depictions of the world of rising bourgeoisie.
