Gnezdovo is an archeological site located near the village of Gnyozdovo in Smolensk Oblast, Russia. The site contains extensive remains of a Slavic-Varangian settlement that flourished in the 10th century as a major trade station on the trade route from the Varangians to the Greeks.
This mask from Gnezdovo is a great protecting charm used by Slavs. It is an exact representation of archaeological findings dug on the territory of Smolensk region in Russia. It is supposed that the mask was worn by peaceful people and by warriors to scare the enemies and to get protection from supreme forces in achieving of the goals no matter it was a victory in a battle or growing crops.
This mask is made from sterling silver but is also available a gold option. In Slavs culture the mask was often made from rough metals and bronze. We craft the item manually with great passion to details to produce exact representation of ancient protector for you. The mask comes with a durable cord (the cord can be different from the photo).
The archaeological site comprises a "citadel" (gorodishche), formerly situated at the confluence of the Rivers Dnieper and Svinets, and a ring of ancient rural settlements (selitba) which occupy an area of 17.5 hectares, of which roughly 5,000 square metres (54,000 sq ft) had been excavated by the end of the 20th century. This makes the site one of the largest survivals of the Viking Age in Europe: only Hedeby covered a larger territory (24 hectares), with the sites of Birka (13 hectares), Dublin (12 hectares), Ribe (10 hectares), and Gda?sk (1 hectare) trailing behind. There are about 3,000 burial mounds arranged in eight clusters of kurgans. Of these, about 1,300 mounds have been explored by Russian and Soviet archaeologists, starting in 1874.
