Annotation
The figurine consists of two anthropomorphic copper figures connected by short protrusions ("hands") together. Small protrusions are instead of unconnected hand. With the help of a strap, the figurines are fixed on a string of blue, white and black multicolored beads. Hunters who went to sable hunt wore an amulet on chests. Abstract by V.V. Gorbacheva.
