Reisekrone Travel-Crown

The crown was cut from a gold sheet. Rosettes and pendants were fastened with gold wire. The entire structure was designed so that it could be folded up and was therefore adapted to the mobile nomadic lifestyle. It testifies the high social status of the buried women in grave 6. Our reconstruction is made of brass.

Szepter Scepter

The function of this object could not be determined with certainty, but because of its shape and the otherwise very rich features in grave 6 it is called as a “scepter”. Probably the star-shaped pendant was attached to one of its ends, which was, as the bar, made of gold. The original was made of massive metal while our reconstruction is occupied with gold leaf wooden body.

Kleid Garment

The garment of the woman from grave 6 was embroidered with almost 600 gold leafs (in our case, brass) that appeared especially in the chest area. Although the fabrics no longer preserved, the shape and cut of the garment could approximately be reconstructed by the position of the small leafs.
