The Nebra Sky Disc

on March 26, 2013

SkyDiscThis stunning card comes from Sabine and Martin in Germany and shows the Nebra sky disc – something which I interestingly learned quite a lot about during my degree.  The disc is Bronze Age and shows stars, the sun and a crescent moon with the two long discs representing solstices – fascinating. Awesome card!
