Yamnaya - Boldyrevo I, Kurgan I, Grave 1

Now for someone different, a proto-Indo-European.

Boldyrevo I, Kurgan I, Grave 1 was an elite burial of a Yamnaya (Pit-Grave Culture) man. He was buried in a kurgan with numerous articles made of copper and meteor iron, and a wagon. One of the world's earliest. The Yamnaya were some of the first people to use wheeled transport, and some of the first people (though not the first) to use horses... though not necessarily to pull their wagons.

These people exploded out of the Ukrainian steppes in the Bronze Age to become the fathers (literally) of most of modern Europe and Eurasia. By the early modern period their descendants ranged from Iceland to China.

I have no idea who did the original reconstruction. It doesn't look like Gerasimov. Do any of you know?
Edit: It was L.T. Yablonsky, thanks again to VerifiableAddress for pointing that out.

You can crop the bottom off if you want, because I'm not sure if the statue is copyrighted somehow.
