On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 301

These rings evoke the splendor of the Celts and their love of personal adornment. The upper ring is one of the most lavish surviving examples. The rams’ heads are similar to those on the great gold neck ring from Frasnes-lez Buissenal also exhibited in this case. The two smaller rings present a combination of tendril motifs, some echoing symmetrical designs that appear to be abstractions of a face.
