About this object

The seal is shaped like the bust of a bearded warrior seen in half length. It probably features Rurik. He is dressed in a helmet with the visor up and a coat of mail. He has a full beard and moustache and a frown on his face. He stands at attention with his arms at his sides. He sits on a circular pedestal with channeling around it. It is uncut as a seal.
