The Tara Brooch is a Celtic brooch of about 700 AD generally considered to be the most impressive of over 50 elaborate Irish brooches to have been discovered. It was found in 1850 and rapidly recognised as one of the most important works of early Christian Irish Insular art; it is now displayed in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tara_Brooch

Small is beautiful to artist Dalton Ghetti. He had always been interested with carving and decided to challenge himself by trying to make things as small as possible. At first he experimented with different kinds of medium like chalk, in the end he decided to decided to carve into the graphite of a pencil. All of his work is done on pencil stubs, the ones we throw away because they’re too short to be of much use.
