Description
 
This replica of the reindeer Scythian Stag Brooch, is taken from a plaque of Scythian art work (late 7th - early 6th century BC). In the eastern region, stags and felines were considered to be appropriate decorations for weapons. The reindeer is a recurrent theme among the ancient pastoral tribes who dominated Eastern Europe and Central Asia during the first millennium BC. Similar ornaments have been found in the great burials of tribal chieftains shamans, and priestesses, where they were used as decorative motifs for clothing and horse-trappings. As symbols of the sun and its daily journey across the sky, ancient reindeer such as the one in this reproduction is depicted in mid-gallop. The ancient reindeer can be linked to the modern myth of Santa Claus, and his own team of flying reindeer.

Scythian Stag Brooch Pin is made of 24K antique gold plate over pewter, size 2" x 1.5".
