Archeo-artist: Jim Hornung blends mythology historical and contemporary
 culture into sculptural assemblage. Natural bone and a selection of organic
 materiels are joined together with genuine gold metal leaf to give these
 creations a jewel like quality resurrected from antiquity.
 The technique of gold leafing is rich in history, itís origins dating to
 ancient Egypt and rising to the highly decorative arts created during
 the Italian renaissance. Those pieces, created centuries ago, to
 this day retain their beauty and are historically
 significant and highly regarded
 museum pieces.
