The back of the cross is covered with a thin gold sheet (instead gold plating). The loop is made of solid gold. At one point it is visible where the gold sheets were joined. A really unusual work from the time of Baroque. The Baroque is often thought of as a period of artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, theater, and music. The style began around 1600 in Rome and Italy, and spread to most of Europe. The popularity and success of the Baroque style was encouraged by the Catholic Church, which had decided at the time of the Council of Trent, in response to the Protestant Reformation, that the arts should communicate religious themes in direct and emotional involvement. The aristocracy also saw the dramatic style of Baroque architecture and art as a means of impressing visitors and expressing triumph, power and control. Baroque palaces are built around an entrance of courts, grand staircases and reception rooms of sequentially increasing opulence. However, "baroque" has resonance and application that extend beyond a simple reduction to either style or period. The Baroque era is sometimes divided into roughly three phases for convenience: • Early Baroque, c. 1590 – c. 1625 • High Baroque, c. 1625 – c. 1660 • Late Baroque, c. 1660 – c. 1725 approx. 1650 - 1700 C.
