The Sarmatian Girl

Recently I wrote a paper on horse-bits of the horsemen from the Carpathian basin and the eastern steppes. I came across many superb pictures of archeological finds and the incredible rich culture of the Scythes and the Sarmatians - just google "Scythian Art" or have a look at Rudenko's "Frozen tombs of Siberia". And then I read two historical novels on that subject which inypired me to do this painting.

Painter IX and Photoshop.
