Description
From the dawn of human history up through the 21st century, crowns have served as symbols of religious position and as signifiers of rank, although from culture to culture they have varied in shape, material, and usage. In this overview—which includes more than 200 color illustrations—René Brus highlights the evolution of crowns, including their symbolism and the precious materials used to make them. Among the remarkable examples shown here are the jewel-encrusted crown of Tsar Mikhail Fyodorovich; a wreath of gold oak leaves fashioned 2300 years ago; and the furry, red and gold headgear of a royal Chinese concubine. Here too are the historic personages who wore these impressive creations, shown in archival photographs and period art.
