Cornucopia

CornucopiaNaturally hollowed driftwood root, lined with gold leaf presenting a pebble from Aberystwyth, supported on a steel and rough timber base

When I held this piece of wood in my hand for the first time it reminded me of my first school day, because you receive a cornucopia  “Schultüte” full of treats on your first school day in Germany.  The opening on the top needed to be filled with a treasure and the deep black pebble was just the right size. Gold leaf gave the wood the light to display the ancient treasure which is millions of years old.
