Pair of Belt Buckles Boar Hunt
Sakae Culture
5th-4th century BC
Gold, glass, coral
L 19.2 cm, w 10.2 cm

These B-shaped openwork cast plaques were executed in high relief. On the reverse is the imprint of some fabric and quadrangular loops on bolts for fastening a belt. The composition represents a boar hunt in the forest. In the centre we see a horseman with a Scythian bow and arrows. A boar has seized the leg of the other horse, whose rider is sitting in a tree. The horses and the goats depicted in the semicircles of the buckles have turned their heads to watch the hunt.
