Скіфські статуї VІ-ІV вв. до н.е. 2 Scythian statues VІ - ІV centuries B.C. 2

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Collection ancient stone plastics of the Dnepropetrovsk Нistorical Мuseum - the largest not only in Ukraine, but also in Europe - 84 statues. Scythian statues VІ - ІV centuries B.C. name "stone images". They perfectly transfer an image of the warrior - man with accessories necessary for the warrior: swords in a sheath, daggers, fighting axes, quivers - the main ornaments of clothes of the warrior. The legend about an origin of stone images has remained: «Once, athletes have become angry about the sun and have started to spit on it, for this sun has turned them into stones». Колекція древньої кам'яної пластики Дніпропетровського історичного музею - найбільша не тільки в Україні, але й у Європі - 84 статуї. Скіфські статуї VІ-ІV вв. до н.е. називають «кам'яні баби». Вони прекрасно передають образ воїна-чоловіка з необхідними аксесуарами: мечами в піхвах, кинджалами, бойовими сокирами, сагайдаками – головними прикрасами одягу воїна. Збереглася легенда про походження кам'яних баб: «Одного разу, богатирі розсердилися на сонце й почали плювати на нього, за це сонце перетворило їх у камені».

Oh my God! The rights one has same hat as common in the "Kunság" area in my country. It is a shepherd's hat and it is very interesting for me. The "kun" nation of Hungary are same with the "kiptsak" nation in Ukraina. With greetings, János
