Gold pendant in the form of a bull's head


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Most of the raw materials for Cypriot jewelry came from the East. Gold became plentiful in the Late Bronze Age, when Syria and Egypt were the primary sources. These earrings are a Cypriot creation, an ornament in the form of a bull's head.
