The Scythian are perhaps best known for their exquisite gold work. Excavations near Almaty in 1969 produced a 5th century BC golden warrior's costume. Known as the "Golden Man", this piece, although not Kazakh in (ethnic) origin, has become a national symbol of Kazakhstan. The costume is made of 4000 pieces of gold, many finely worked with animal motifs. This replica of the Golden Man is seen in the Central State Museum in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
