Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381845108328 8th C. Russian Bronze Pendant - Shield & Crow Feet Russia, Western Siberia, Yamal Peninsula and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug (District), 8th to 10th century CE. A beautiful bronze pendant, with a rounded, shield-like boss with a concentric circle design and round-bell-like baubles jutting from the edges on one side. These give way to five open loops with five dangling crow's feet on short chains hanging through them. There is a high level of detail throughout, including the webbing of the feet. We believe that these items were hung from hunting belts and later buried with their owners. Birds seem to have been very significant in this culture, with their heads often serving as protective features on human figures and their dangling feet often depicted on rustling, jangling artifacts like this one.
