An incredible miniature bronze portrait of the King of Macedon Alexander the Great was recently uncovered on an island of Denmark.

The amazing unearthing of the small bronze piece occurred when two metal detectorists stumbled upon the artifact while surveying a field near Ringsted in Zealand, a Danish Island located 60km from the capital Copenhagen. Denmark.

The artifact was identified as a bracket, measuring approximately 2.7 centimeters in diameter, and is made of a bronze alloy. It depicts an engraved portrait of a man with wavy hair adorned with a crown featuring twisted ram horns, as stated by Museum West Zealand.

Danish archaeologists confirmed the likeness to Alexander the Great, the renowned leader of the ancient Macedonian kingdom, whose empire extended from the Balkans to modern-day Pakistan before his death at 32.

Freerk Oldenburger, an archaeologist at Museum West Zealand, pointed out the distinctive features of Alexander the Great, such as his characteristic hair and the ram horns, in the portrait.

Interestingly, another group of archaeologists discovered a similar bracket portrait with the same stylized image years ago in Jutland, a large peninsula containing Denmark’s mainland regions. This earlier find, also a metal bracket, was found among a collection of weapons and likely served as an ornament worn on a silver shield mount, signifying status or prestige.
