Amber Jesus

Amber Jesus

This carving of the face of Jesus was created using Baltic Amber, which is petrified tree sap that hardens over centuries and becomes a coveted gem stone. I saw a ton of amber artworks when I was on a European tour of the Baltic capitals last summer, which is trip I would recommend to anyone with enough to cash to throw down.
