Conference object (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
During the Bronze Age, the representation of birds in Serbia is often found in various forms of pottery production, especially during the LBA. Pottery objects with ornithomorphic characteristics, from Middle and LBA, are found in greater numbers than before, appearing mainly in funerary contexts where they are often deposited as grave offering found together with incineration burials of Žuto Brdo–Gârla Mare cultural group. Professor M. Vasić has shown particular interest for this period when he mapped the sites of this cultural group in north-eastern Serbia during the first decades of the 20th century. It should be noted that these objects are rarely found in the context of dwellings and settlements.
