This is from the Hochdorf Chieftain's Grave, a lavish Iron-age Celtic burial mound in Germany. The Celts there traded with and often emulated their southern neighbours, the Greeks.

So there's this big cauldron with Greek lions around the rim:
But then! Oh no! Something happened to one of the lions, and a Celtic bronzesmith had to replace it!
