Plaque: Panther Curved Round

Created: Sakae Culture. 7th - 6th century BC

Found: Siberian collection of Peter I. Russia, Siberia

This plaque is shaped like a feline beast of prey. Its curved neck and body form a semicircle, while the tail and paws, freely arranged within the ring, are linked to each other and to the beast's face with cast crosspieces. The plaque is fashioned in a high relief. At the ends of the paws, tail and on the face there are hollows for inlays. On the reverse are three loops to attach the plaque to a garment. The figure of a curved beast of prey is characteristic of the early Scythian Animal Style.
