This photograph belongs to the series, 'Absolute Powers / ex nihilo.' These photographs dive deeper into the taboo and controversial topic of money by showcasing an array of intriguing real-world historic and contemporary objects (some worthless, others immensely valuable), while examining how societies perceive, express, and destroy value. This ornate 24k pure gold necklace consists of highly-detailed and beautifully-intricate filigree (metalwork) hand design. Many cultures throughout the world value gold immensely, not only for beauty in the case of jewelry and dowries, but as a time-tested generational store of wealth and preservation of purchasing power.
