The Scythians were master metal workers. Many Scythian gold objects have been found in burial mounds. Animal designs appear on a large proportion of the items. Some had decorative purposes such as adorning ceremonial weapons, thrones, crowns, and jewelry. Others were used for horse bridals and to decorate the centers of shields.
Since we didn't have the money or expertise to work with gold, our medallions were constructed from polymer clay.
Lastly the clay was painted with gold model paint to look like real gold.
