Description: Hundreds of tiny scales are individually soldered to the writhing forms of two confronted dragons on this magnificent gold torc.  Thick curving horns sweep back over the long pointed ears of the rather wolf-like dragon heads.  With muzzles drawn into ferocious snarls, these mighty beasts express the formidable strength of the Scythians, one of ancient Eurasia's most powerful cultures.
