Face shaped mount

Man's face of tin alloy. The face has a large walrus-like moustache, a broad flat nose, bushy hair and almond-shaped eyes. On the head there is a triangular hat, with decorated front edge, possibly a crown. It is unclear what it was used for, and who was depicted, but the face may possibly be a 'pilgrim badge". Part of a hoard find, Unna Saiva, Gällivare Parish, Lappland.
