Description

The Finno-Ugrian people who anciently inhabited North-Western Russia fashioned pendants which were miniature copies of everyday objects and animals, such as this little horse. She comes from the famous town excavations at Novgorod, and was found in the 12th century layers.

Several amulets and bells might be attached by chains to a large bird- or beast-shaped hanger. Worn from a necklace or attached to a belt, their merry jingling would drive away spells and bad spirits. The original is in bronze and is 40% larger than our pewter one.
