A pendant is inspired by the original from the Hermitage collection. A golden plaque in the shape of a panther which served as a quiver decoration was discovered during the excavations of one of the oldest areas of the Scythian culture - the Kelermesskiyi mound in Pricubanie (the 7th century B.C.). The master skillfully conveyed the beast's strength and aggressiveness. In order to maintain the magic power of the image he placed ten small panthers on its paws and tail.
