The Stars Change: Pendant Of The City

I've been working on  a silver pendant from her book "The Stars Change" for Mary Anne Mohanraj.  I've written about it before.  Tonight I finished the Mughal palace.  (I've been looking at photos of Mughal palaces for quite a while.) The other buildings are mostly carved, although all of them need final work.  The tower of art will have to be last because it's 3 dimensional nature makes it very fragile for a work in progress.  I also blocked out today the warrens beneath the city.  The pendant is less than 2" high and obviously it's stylized.Thought folks might be interested in the quote I'm referencing.


"There were a few other cities on this world, but none nearly so large, so glittering..... The medical complex, bright and white and vast.  .  The mathematical eyrie clung to the side of a mountain, not far below the astronomer's peak.  The psychologists had built themselves a maze to navigate; mastering it was a graduation requirement.  The tower of art centered the campus, a frothy creation of violet spun steel.  And the historians lived within a vast Mughal palace, a testament to the glories of their ancestors."

I have a new camera that should handle fine detail well, so perhaps I'll  be able to get an OK photo of it.

And I have a new cat named George.  Photos of him will definitely follow.
