Ancient Russian Centaur Found In Novgorod

During archeological diggings in Velikiy Novgorod Russian scientists have found a figure they named ancient Russian centaur. The figure was found in layers dated back to the end of XI century in the Troitsky dig near the Novgorod Kremlin.
      Unknown craftsman had cut a wooden bearded man with a hat on his head and a bow behind his back. The figure has hooves instead of feet and is covered with a golden coating. It is broken in that very part, where human body transforms to the body of a horse. The other part is lost. Scientists report that such figures have never been found before.
      Experts suppose the centaur to be the child toy, but at the same time they mark that toys in Ancient Russian had never had such coatings. The centaur is now heading for the expertise to find out its real age and the wood it was cut from.
