"Doe hunter", embroidery. Xiongnu Burial Mound 20, Noin Ula, Mongolia.


Doe hunter. A fragment of an outer garment with embroidery on silk.

The great charm of this find derives from the reliable dating of the burial mound from which it originates: the end of the first century BC - the beginning of the first century AD, most probably, the first decade of the first century AD (Chistyakova, 2009, pp. 5968; Minyaev, Elikhina, 2010). That is why the main questions are who made the embroidery, where these fragments were made and who is depicted in it.
