Gold Monster
 

               

Han Dynasty

Length: 11cm   Height: 11.5cm

Unearthed from Shenmu County, Shaanxi Province in 1957

Standing on a lotus-shaped stand, the monster bends over to prepare to fight. It has a large horn which is divided into four branches and is decorated with a monster-head relief. Its tail is also decorated with a monster-head, and it rolls up and looks like a ring. Possibly it is an ornamental object of the Hun people who lived in the prairie in Northern China.
