Early Iron Age
Scythian Culture / Noble Warrior or King Bone Carving with Rhyton, Sword and clearly visible Phallus.

Size: 2,6 x 9,4 cm
Time-frame: 6 - 4 Century BC

Such figures well known because of Stone Stella. According to the description of the figures, they refer to a variety of anthropomorphic pillars. The man holds a massive rhyton in his right hand. One clearly sees a belt, on which hang an acinaces (short sword). You can see Stone figure with similar motif.

It seems that in the archaic time, these monuments became a dominant symbolism of the "world tree" or the phallus, which on anthropomorphic traits appear. Later, they become more and more humanoid in form with a gradual transition to the anatomic sculptural plasticity and, possibly, to personalization of an image.
