Steppe Nomads, Dragon Amulet, c. 8th-13th Cent AD
Copper alloy; 26mm/2.8gm
The nomadic tribes in Northen Ukraine used such amulets/charms to not only bring good luck, but to also tap into the power of the effigy. This sort of amulet would have belonged to a warrior, or perhaps a shaman, and would have resided in a small pouch worn around the neck or attached to a belt.
Seller's Note; charms like this are Very Rare and are almost never presented in the West. You may never see another like it...and never at such a low price!
