Crowns, crosiers and combs: worn by sovereigns or suspended as offerings above altars; brandished by bishops and used to anoint the hair of emperors and priests.  These fascinating objects, crafted with infinite care from luxury materials, conveyed essential messages of temporal and sacramental power to those who owned them and the audiences who gazed at them from afar.
