More painting was done. Some parts have to be over painted to bring about more color contrast and deepness.
More gems were added: triangle shaped onyx, square mother of pearl, carnelian and lapis lazuli. Maybe I will remove some of them again later, if I think I overdid the whole thing as usual. Maybe the whole painting has to be cleared up soon. This stage I reach in most of my paintings, and sometimes they get over painted in big parts then. I am not sure up to now what I will do this time. Maybe it won`t be necessary to over paint so much, because I did the painting after a drawing and not as usual out of nothing.
Up to now about 100 pieces of metal were used and 42 natural and glass gems.
