I based the pose of this one on the beautiful photographs from the excavation at Pompeii – human skeletons found curled up with their jewellery still encircling the bones. This king has a heavy layered crown with clear/aqua gems, bedded in with black antiquing wax and it’s set in a black wooden frame.
