(ORDO NEWS) — The ancient figurines were buried with a child of the Okunev culture in the Bronze Age.
Rare finds of prehistoric toys were made at the Itkol II burial ground in the Republic of Khakassia in southern Siberia. All figurines are meticulously crafted and expertly crafted.
Scientists did not go into the true motives that prompted the ancient people to create these strange creatures and ranked them as “mythical”.
The finds were made in the grave of a “simple child”, not in an elite burial.
The figurine of a pagan god, pulled by a fisherman from a Siberian river, according to scientists, was a child’s toy or a rattle to scare away evil spirits.
He has almond-shaped eyes, a large mouth with full lips and a fierce expression. On the back – braided hair with wavy lines. Below the braid are lines similar to fish scales.
Eight intricately carved figures with the faces of strange gods, people, birds, elk and boar lay on the chest of an ancient baby.
This discovery was made in the northwest near Lake Itkul.
