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.
