Exceptional parts

exhibited as part of the exhibition "Celtic?" alongside four other sculptures discovered in Paule (Côtes-d'Armor) in 1988, these pieces are "exceptional by their rarity" , says Manon Six, exhibition commissioner. "There are only around thirty works of this known type, including 13 in Brittany. And only the eight presented today are a preserved environment.

dated between the 2nd and the 1st century BC, the first of the sculptures represents a bearded man, carrying around the neck a torque (collar), "sign of wealth" . More sober, the other three statuettes recall the mortuary masks. " Archaeologists think that these are representations of deceased, from the aristocracy of the time" , adds Manon Six. The particularly well preserved wooden bucket, circled with metal, was to serve to serve wine. Another sign of opulence.
