    SHIIIINEEEEY - it has always held value.

    some of the most amazing pieces i ever saw were by the scythians (6th - 7th b.c.) - cast in such detail that you needed a magnifying glass to see the detail.

    check out these pictures from the hermitage museum.  the collection left russia and came to the metropolitan museum in ny when i lived there.  i still vividly remember the pieces and was struck by how advanced the scythian society was to have made such beautiful and delicate pieces.  totally changed my view of "early" civilizations - made me realize that they were extremely advanced back then - not the stone clubbers wearing animal skins that was portrayed by many "christian" stories.
