Decorating of the halos of Christ


Niello

Decorating of the halos of Christ and St Maurus is effected by the technique of Niello. Into the silver lamina the decoration is engraved - cloaked by the mixture acquired by melting silver, lead and brimstone (sulphur) and by subsequent pulverization. The mixture is applied in an analogous way like enamel, niello however has a lower fusing temperature. In this case the niello plate (lamina) is imbedded into another gilded copper lamina, whose edgings are decorated by minted ornaments.
