Description

Our pin has been adapted from a Late Bronze Age pendant in the shape of a bull's head (ca. 1400–1050 B.C.) from The Met's Cesnola Collection. Hailing from Cypress, the pendant is made of gold and decorated with granulation.

Celebrated for its breadth and depth, the Cesnola Collection was amassed during the 19th century by Luigi Palma di Cesnola (Italian, 1832–1904) while serving in Cyprus. The Met purchased the bulk of it in the 1870s by public subscription. Cesnola accompanied the collection, assisting with its installation and publication, and became the Museum's first director (1879–1904).
