Ostrogothic Eagle Bracer.

There are several Eagle Broochs from the ancient Goths in archeology. Eagle was a sacred spirit for Gothic tribes, maybe something imported from their travels in eastern Europe or western Asia. An animal also sacred to Wotan in later times. Even in Xtian times, Goths were worshipping the eagle as a sacred animal. We though that the sons of Gaut still being unconsciously heathens...

The bracer above is painted with gold tincture (not the same as golden tincture), it is based on the Ostrogothic Domagnano treasure from the 6th century CE.
