Sculpture of Mongolia
Bronze age sculpture

Deer stone The brightest artifacts of ancient sculpture of Mongolia are deer stones (called “буган чулуу” (bugan chuluu) in Mongolian) widespread in the regions of the Mongolian Altai ridge and Khangai mountains. The art of depicting deer on stones that was popular in Western Eurasia and Central Asia during the Bronze Age belong to the Scytho-Siberian style. About 500 deer stones making up 80% of all known in the vast Eurasian steppe zone are concentrated in the north and northwest of Mongolia. Most scholars estimate that Bronze Age nomads erected the graceful and mysterious megaliths throughout the northern regions of Mongolia and southern Siberia around 1000 BCE, though some scholars think they may be the work of later, Iron Age peoples who appeared by 700 BCE in Mongolia. There are pictures of the sun and moon near the top of the deer stones below which is a line of a geometric ornament. Then there is the pictures of deer characterized as in a “flying gallop”. Below the deer depictions is another belt decorated with geometric ornaments. On rare specimens, a depiction of human face is found. Thus, in the upper part of a deer stone discovered at a site named Shar-Us, there is depiction of the disk of the sun on one side and a picture of a human face on the other side. The Scytho-Siberian style is also characteristic to the metal works of the Bronze Age craftsmen. Thus handles of knives were decorated with figurines of the head of a deer, ram or goat with enlarged ears and protruding eyes and with spiraling horns. These object of the Bronze Age belong to the Karasuk culture which originated in Mongolia and spread northwards to Siberia and southwards to Yin China.
