    A hand-cast and hand-painted sculpture based on The Franks Casket on display in the British Museum (as shown in the fifth picture).

    The Franks Casket, also known as the Auzon casket, is a rectangular Anglo-Saxon casket which is hand-carved from whalebone and dated to the 8th century.

    This reproduction, cast in resin and painted by hand, has been inspired by the original and developed with the guidance of leading experts to present a complete version of how this magnificent piece could have looked. The replica is exactly the same size as the original: 23cm (length) x 19cm (width) x 13cm (height).

    The original box was richly carved on the sides and lid in high relief with a range of scenes and accompanying texts in both the runic and Roman alphabets, and in both Old English and Latin. The box shows scenes from Roman, Jewish, Christian and Germanic tradition.

    The replica is handmade and painted in the UK by the British sculptor Andrew Lilley exclusively for the Museum.
