There’s more than one story here.
There is a great chalice subtly placed in the centre of the frame so as to not draw too much attention.
At first I thought that the golden underside was from years of being handled but then noticed the copper tones and tarnished bronze around the rim.
Perhaps it was made that way, perhaps it became that way or perhaps it was restored that way.
What ever its history, it is just one of many stories here.
