Description: Bronze head of a Celtic warrior with clearly worked out facial features. The nose is broad, the mouth closed with thick lips, the eyes have broad lids and deep hallmarks. The neck is long and may indicate that this bronze was a finely worked end piece of an important object. On the head a narrow strip, which is rather a plume than a hair strip. With its flat back head it is assumed that he is wearing a tight helmet because no ears are visible. Very fine Celtic small bronze. Mounted.
