Scythian Stone Sculpture Found in Novosibirsk

Workers of the Altai State University have discovered the so-called deer stone with ancient carved images in Novosibirsk Region.
      According to archeologists, such sculptures were produced by the early Scythians (the 9th - 7th cc BC). The ancient piece of art is tentatively 3 thousand years old.
      The granite slab of mans height size depicts a human head and face, a belt with a detailed picture of a weapon, and all the body is framed with images of running deer.
      The new find is the most northern of the known deer stones and thus allows assuming that Scythian culture was spread to farther northern lands.
