Description

The tradition of animal-ornamented bronzes in the Caucasus region first emerged in the late 2nd millennium B.C. By the beginning of the Late Bronze and Early Iron ages, examples of stylized animals, with small waists and arched necks and backs, appeared on numerous bronze tools found in places such as Georgia, Armenia, and the Northern Caucasus.

A belt clasp (ca. 1st–2nd century A.D.) in The Met collection depicts a stylized stag with exaggerated proportions, incised with concentric circles. Birds and S-shaped spirals fill the rest of the scene, while a herringbone-patterned border with raised circular knobs at the corners frame the openwork. Our pin recalls the design of this cast-bronze original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So modern looking and yet so old Just the right touch. The size and patina are fitting. I will wear this happily through the holiday season. This culture's art is just amazing and now a little piece of it can accompany me. Could not be happier.
