Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381849026442 9th C. Siberian White Bronze Pendant, Men on Sturgeon Russia, Western Siberia, Yamal Peninsula and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug (District), 8th to 10th century CE. A white bronze pendant or amulet in the shape of three figures with arms crossed standing in front of a large fish (probably a sturgeon). Low-relief incised lines give texture to the body of the fish and shape to the human figures. They wear caps that have been interpreted as being armor. The arms crossed stance is incredibly common, with nearly all known examples of human figures from this period, both men and women, young and old, depicted in this manner. The space between their necks function as twin holes for suspension and this was probably worn as a pendant or sewn onto clothing to create a bright, sparkling effect and a jangling noise. Size: 3" W x 1.75" H (7.6 cm x 4.4 cm) #117310 Condition: Signs of wear, but design is very clear. Provenance: Ex-Private LA County collection All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
