VOICES OF THE DISAPPEARED (3) -Serpent-Head Armlets from a (looted) Celtic Burial at Sremska Mitrovitsa (Serbia)

 

Magnificent silver armlets, with coral inlay, looted from the burial of a Celtic lady at Sremska Mitrovica (Srem) in Serbia. In contrast to other parts of Celtic Europe, the serpent is very commonly depicted on Balkan Celtic art, indicating that it had a special religious significance for tribes in this part of Europe.
