Bronze Age cultures in Anatolia focused their symbolic displays on the remaining powerful and dangerous animals of the region such as the lion. By comparing themselves to the most powerful and ferocious carnivores of the land, Anatolians placed themselves symbolically at the top of the natural hierarchy, serving to legitimize their leadership role and their military prowess. Big cats were used by the elites as an almost universal symbol for kingly strength and political power.
This handmade Lion's bracelet is made of 18K gold, sterling silver and 4.03 ctw of brown, champagne, cognac & yellow diamonds.
