The restoration works on the "golden woman" in Ural will be finished soon. In 2012, the Archaeologists have discovered a trove in the complex "Taksay-1"of Terektinsk district. It belongs to the Sarmatian period.

This is a tomb of noble female priestesses in appropriate attire and headdress. Moreover, about 80 gold ornaments: a mirror, knife, bronze cauldron and the altar were found next to her, reports 24.kz.

The wooden comb is regarded as a unique artifact by historians. It depicts the battle scenes of the war between the Saks and Persians. The restoration is hampered by the fact that according to the Sarmatian ceremony, the burial was burned and the wood products were almost destroyed. As for now, most of the works are finished, the sculpture will be presented in Astana, and a copy will remain in the museum of Uralsk.

Crime Altynbekov, the restorer:

- We were able to recreate the image of this life and published the book "The reborn from the ashes" on this monument. Thus, we were able to see the initial look and complete all conservational and restoration works.

Murat Sydykov, the director of the Center of History and Archaeology of WKR:

- According to the preliminary data , this burial belongs to the sixth century BC. Firstly, it is the oldest discovery of such a noble burial in Kazakhstan. Secondly, it gives a lot of information on cultural and spiritual world.
