    Mural from the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak. Kazanlak, Valley of Roses, Bulgaria; 4th century BCE. The Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak is a vaulted brickwork "beehive" (tholos) tomb near the town of Kazanlak, central Bulgaria. The tomb is part of a large Thracian necropolis. It comprises a narrow corridor and a round burial chamber, both decorated with murals representing a Thracian couple at a ritual funeral feast. The monument dates back to the 4th century BCE and has been on the UNESCO protected World Heritage Site list since 1979. The murals are memorable for the splendid horses and especially for the gesture of farewell, in which the seated couple grasp each other's wrists in a moment of tenderness and equality. The paintings are Bulgaria's best-preserved artistic masterpieces from the Hellenistic period. The tomb is situated near the ancient Thracian capital of Seuthopolis.

    Wooden guardian figure, Eastern Zhou period, 4th century BC. A figure with antlers and a long protruding tongue. The antlers on this figure are made of dry lacquer. Carved wooden figures with antlers probably represented the shamans or their powers, as the wearing of antlers seems to have been significant in shamanistic rituals. Shamans were used to intercede and communicate with the spirits. Figures like this were placed as guardians in tombs in the Chu state in Hunan and Hubei province. The Chu are renowned for their sculptural tradition and wood carving skills, which also embraced more realistic creatures, such as cranes and deer. OA, 1950.11.15.1
