I'm Bela. Brazillian, old enough, doing stuff and carrying on. I don't see much beauty in life, but I don't deny its beautiful details though. This is a world of my own. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Gold and Silver Pomander, 16th Century
***Pomander - a ball made of perfumes, such as ambergris (whence the name),musk, or civet. The pomander was worn or carried in a vase, also known by the same name, as a protection against infection in times of pestilence or merely as a useful article to modify bad smells.The globular cases which contained the pomanders were hung from a neck-chain or belt, or attached to the girdle, and were usually perforated and made of gold or silver.Sometimes they contained several partitions, in each of which was placed a different perfume.
