Publisher Description

This title is suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years old. "The Scythian Metalwork Kit" was inspired by a gold griffin in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art that's about 2600 years old and probably came from a city in Russia. In ancient times, the griffin was usually associated with divine beings and thought to possess protective powers. This kit includes a plastic mould, two sheets of gold-coloured metal, a rubbing tool, a stylus and a museum label, plus a brochure of instructions, photographs and information about the design.
