Gold penannular armlet: the monsters have long snouts, rows of teeth, triangular hsaped eyes and long tails which interlock at the back of the hoop. The cast is solid and the decoration is chased. These bracelets can be associated either with art from the Caucasus or with the Scythian-style art of western Siberia.
