kunst der kelten - celtic parade helmet

Agris, France, about 350 BC.

Musée d’Angoulême.

 

This impressive piece of art was buried in a cave in Agris, western France. The entire cap, neck guard and cheek guards were all cluttered with lavish gold tendril and leaf design. Together with the gold, red coral inlays provide n effectual contrast.
