Armlet


Description Provenance Credit
Description The pictured lion, whose hindquarters are fluted tubes, is executed in a detailed and lively fashion. The reclining animal once faced another lion, and together they formed the terminals of a bracelet. The hoop was most likely made out of thick gold wire, of which only traces remain inside the tubes.
Provenance Pontus (?); Dikran Kelekian, Paris and New York; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1911, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
