The Burial of Ananauri

I had the amazing opportunity to recreate the Bronze Age Burial of Ananauri no. 3 in Georgia for the Frankfurt Archaeological Museum. The burial chamber was discovered beneath a massive mound 12 m high and 100 m in diameter. The grave dates to the 24th century BC and contained 7 individuals and 2 chariots, very early examples of wagon-building.
These are stills from a 3 minute animation.
