Bode Museum – Sprang hairnet from the 5th century

Sprang is an old technique that got several of my friends very excited recently. And as I have a certain love for interesting and rare things, I remembered a wonderful example from the 5th century on display at the Bode Museum in Berlin, Germany.

I had the great pleasure to get to see and photograph this beautiful piece during my visit in 2014 and hope you’ll enjoy it too:
