Description: This sculptural stone product testifies to the fact that savromatical sculptors perfectly mastered the volume-plastic means of fine art. With particular clarity, this was manifested in the design of the legs of the Kuraily cemetery, in which in the round sculpture the canonical images of wolf heads with a threateningly ginning mouth are characteristic of Savromat art.Interesting and original design of predators' ears in the form of a horse’s hoof imprint. Such decorative symbolism, as is known, is widespread in the products of the applied art of the Eurasian pastoral tribes of the early iron era.

The described sandstone three-legged table comes from the undisturbed burial of the priestess. There are pollution, light spots.
