National Archaeological Museum at Cagliari

I love seeing objects that were worn and handled by people over 3,000 years ago. Was this a present for a lover? How did the person who wore it feel when they were wearing it or touching it? It is such a human link to imagine the creation and use of these items, now sitting in a case in a museum. These necklaces would look at home in a contemporary jewellery store ..... The small icons have such a resonance of the hands that made them!
