Ferienkurs: Tränen der Götter
In ancient myths one called amber as "tears of the gods". This fossilized resin has been in great demand since the Stone Age. Both pearls and figures were created from it. One of the oldest sculptures in northern Germany is the moose of Weitsche (in the district of Lüchow-Dannenberg), which was designed about 14,000 years ago. In the Bronze Age, the amber trade experienced a new dimension. Baltic amber was negotiated over many stations to distant Egypt. Raw amber is however rather unimpressive. Only by grinding and polishing does he get his magical appearance. In this holiday course, an individual piece of jewelery is made from raw amber stone using stone or bronze age funds, which may be taken home.
