Timeless are pleased to offer a fantastic Roman Zoomorphic Brooch in the shape of a standing horse.

 

Cast in bronze around 1900 years ago, this fascinating little brooch represents Rome's long obsession with animal symbology. Found everywhere in Roman life including their weapon ornamentation, coins, frescos, harness mounts and mosaics, animals depicted by the Romans were often stylised, and represented creatures that were spiritually significant to them, such as hares, swans, stags, fish, horses, and eagles.

 

Measuring 42mm in length, this piece would make a unique gift.

 

Now available in the Timeless Galleries.
