Scythian pectoral from between the 6th & 4th centuries BCE discovered in a tumulus in the Ukraine. The crescent-shaped pectoral has a well-balanced composition which is symmetrical but not rigidly so. The ends of the crescent that come close together are decorated with stylized lion heads holding rings in their mouths; these rings served as clasps. The pectoral is divided into three “tiers” or bands with gold braids framing each “tier.”
