The images you'll see as you scroll down to the current text are all part of the story telling in my novel, Realms of Gold:Ritual to Romance.

Bianca Caldwell, pen name, Bianca Fiore, is a writer for an art magazine. In each of her monthly stories she describes an object used in ancient ritual.

Kylix Found with the Krater

With all the jewels, gold and silver and bronze utensils found with the Lady of Vix, why a ceramic cup was included is puzzling. Ceramics, according to the experts, did not have much value.

How and why the kylix found its way to Vix is part of the story-telling in Realms of Gold.
