Gold leafing is an ancient craft used to this day. The technique requires a steady hand, concentration and a gentle blow to make the leaf to evenly land on the primed material. The finished result is an accessory which reflects the sun light like a mirror. Gold is the color of the sun disc and freshly harvested honey offered to the mount Eryx shrines of Queen Bee- Aphrodite.
