Thracian treasure from Borovo, Bulgaria- 15 декември 2016 г.

Bulgaria is known with many Thracian treasures. These treasures were exhibited in the halls of the Louvre and art connoisseurs from around the world were able to see them and admire them.
One of the famous Thracian treasures is Borovo treasure and it  was discovered accidentally by Traicho Stoev in 1974 in the village of Borovo, Ruse, Bulgaria. In plowing tractors brought to the surface the ancient objects. Now Borovo treasure is part of the exhibits of the Regional Historical Museum, Rousse.

The treasure consists of 5 silver vessels - bowl rhytonised kettle, three rhytons - a horse, a bull and a winged sphinx. It is assumed that the vessels are part Odrysian Treasury, which was conquered by Phylip II of Macedonia 339 BC. On two rhytons there are signs of Odrysian king Cotis I (383-359 BC. Chr.) and  it is assumed that the whole service had been donated by Thracian rulers in the town Beos to the king Cotis

The most interesting vessel from this treasure is rhytonised jug with a hole.  Jug is made of silver giltwith  height 16.5 cm and a diameter at the mouth of 9 cm and dated about 383-360 BC. Jug is covered with three figural frieze that are interpreted in the spirit of mysterial rituals connected with the cult of the Kabiri.

Luxurious gift for a wedding- 05 ноември 2016 г.

If you are looking for original, luxurious gift for a wedding, my suggestion is one of the most frequently purchased luxury gifts for wedding - hython (Thracian ancient vessel for wine) with a head of a deer from the golden Panagyurishte treasure.

The symbolism of the deer is very interesting! It is a symbol of the sun and solar energy. In Bulgarian folklore, the sun rides deer, and sometimes the sun itself is portrayed as a deer with luminous horns. Deer often is compared to the tree of life and symbolizes the predicted light, rebirth and fertility. The deer is a symbol of continuous creation, because the deer periodically renews its horns. Therefore the art replica of the rhyton in the form of  deer's head is very suitable gift for a wedding - symbolizing the sun, abundance, renewal and prosperity.
