Diadems and bracelets

The collection of diadems and their fragments includes wide and narrow shapes made on ivory blades. Wide whole items are rounded and have a trapezoid or oval shape of edges. Narrow items have a "sharpened" shape of edges. 

The collection of bracelets includes narrow blades, volumetric hoops and ivory or boghead clips. A bracelet-clip is a rectangular-shaped concave blade with rounded edges. The creation of the items were made with different technological ways. 

The ornamentation of bracelets and diadems has traditional Mal'ta elements such as cupulas and straight lines. The type of ornamentations and forms can indicate different functions of items or their semantic meanings.
