A response to The West Yorkshire Hoard

June 2019

Treatment: Disarray
Outline, Material, Detail – Overlie, questions the different parts of the 6 gold and 1 lead object/s that make up this hoard; by viewing these parts separately, can the perceived value of these objects change? Does the viewer have a preference for just part of the object? The order and positioning of the objects denote the random order in which the objects were found; the chance finding, and sequencing of these hoarded objects is completely detached to the value or differing age of these objects.
