A Prague Sun in New England

The “Prague Sun” is the most valuable object in the collection of the Loreto Liturgical Treasures in the Czech Republic. This breathtaking Sun shape is made of a high gilded silver from 1699 and weighs over 12 kg. It is decorated by 6222 diamonds.
On a recent walk by a familiar stream, I was dazzled not by gilded silver or diamonds, but by glistening ice in sunburst patterns around a stone.

About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.
