The images you'll see as you scroll down to the current text are all part of the story telling in my novel, Realms of Gold:Ritual to Romance.

Bianca Caldwell, pen name, Bianca Fiore, is a writer for an art magazine. In each of her monthly stories she describes an object used in ancient ritual.

Sarmatian Zoomorphic Art: Pectoral

Pectoral is a symbol of power.  

This magnificent golden pectoral depicts scenes of torment with two movable extremities in the form of Rams heads with a long decorative neck.  In the center of the composition there is a scene showing two griffins tearing at a bull. It lies on its stomach with its forelegs outstretched and its hind legs tucked under it.

To the left there is a scene of two lions tearing at a ram. To the left there is a mythical animal with a cat-like body poised to jump to the left.

Found near the village of Kosika.
