Golden Man arrives in Malaysia

The "Golden Man" is a Kazakhstani warrior costume and dates to approximately 500BC. It is believed to have been worn by a high status Scythian Prince who was killed during a battle.

It was found in 1969 in a Scythian tomb about 60km east of Almaty, near Yesik. It is made out of more than 4,000 separate gold pieces, many of them finely worked with animal motifs.
