Scythian Art


Scythian art is best known for its 'animal art.' Flourishing between the 7th and 3rd centuries BCE on the steppe of Central Asia, with echoes of Celtic influence, the Scythians were known for their works in gold. Moreover, with the recent unearthing of their kurgans, a high level of cultural sophistication is reflected in their art and dress.
