A charming reproduction of a 5th-century BC miniature owl-shaped brooch from the Hermitage collection. The original was found during the excavations of the Scythian Seven Brothers burial mound. The Scythians were ancient nomadic tribes that lived in the steppes on the northern coast of the Black Sea, the Kuban basin area, and the Dnieper valley during the 7th century BC tothe 4th century AD. The original was produced by a skilled craftsman who most likely created such items as costume jewelry for Scythian nobility.
