Ancient Scythia was centered on the Pontic-Caspian steppe and ranged from modern Kazakhstan to the Baltic coast of modern Poland and to Georgia. The identities of the nomadic peoples of the steppes is often uncertain, and the term “Scythian” should often be taken loosely. In the earlier period Scythian art included very vigorously modeled stylized animal figures, shown singly or in combat.
