It is a faithful replica of very unique archaeological find from Bryansk (now Russia). It is dated to late Xth cent. Such brooches were worn between tortoise brooches and slightly below them and used for cloak fastening.

The amazingly detailed and meticulous granulation work creates two symmetrically placed beasts with eyes, noses and opened months, showing their teeth, with their bodies tightly interlaced. This design  corresponds with Viking art style called Jellinge, but also shows influences of Slavic art. The original was probaly made by a Gotlanding goldsmith, as the decoration is similar to those seen on Gotlandic box brooches, It is a wonderful proof for contacts between Scandinavians and the local Slavs.
