we visited türler for lunch today and we were amazed about this japanese artist who showed how he is doing makie-e. this is a traditional japanese decorative art technique, which is made with laque from a laque-tree (!) which is only growing in east-asia and who has to be at least 10 years old to give this juice. the objects out of wood become many layers of laque (between 20 and 80!!) and each one has to dry up to 8 hours! that means, the work for a jewel case could take 20 years!!! this and the very precise and work makes it to luxury objects and they have their price! they are decorated with cinnabar, ferrite or gold and each object is unique! 
amazing also the rest of the jewelery like giant pearls from the south seas. it takes about 20 years to find them! of course they have their price: 1, 6 millions! and some very nice emerald&diamonds from africa.
