Thick Bronze Bracelet of Hittite probable manufacture.
The Hittite were an ancient war like people. It is no wonder that the powerful lion became a motif on their gates and even on their jewelry as in this example. The narrowness of the opening would indicate a small delicate wrist, making the weight and thickness of this bracelet seem out of place. But like woman of all times fashion rules and not comfort.
