ear-ring

Gold ear-ring of twisted wire terminating in a horned lion's head; the head is hollow, hammered from the same piece of metal as the hoop and decorated with beaded wire; the details of the mouth are done in repoussé; the other end of the ring tapers to a fine point and is attached to a hoop in the animal's mouth.
