Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This painting depicts Argentum or Silver in its natural state and I have portrayed it in an abstract artwork.The heavy texture and many colors including silver make the painting vibrant and unique.
Silver was probably first discovered after gold and copper.
Silver occurs as a free metal, but much less often than gold or copper. At some point, humans learned to extract silver from its ores. But that discovery must have occurred very early on in human history. Archaeologists have found silver objects dating to about 3400 B.C. in Egypt. Drawings on some of the oldest pyramids show men working with metal, probably extracting silver from its ores.

Other early cultures also used silver. Written records from India describe the metal as far back as about 900 B.C. Silver was in common use in the Americas when Europeans first arrived.

The word silver goes back to at least the 12th century, A.D. It seems to have come from an old English word used to describe the metal, seolfor. The symbol for silver (Ag), however, comes from its Latin name, argentum. The name may have originated from the Greek word argos, meaning "shiny".
The sides of the artwork are painted over and the painting has been varnished to protect its surface from the environmental factors such as dust and ultraviolet light .
