This model of the house was discovered in the urn of a cremated deceased. This very cleverly designed craft model clearly shows a real copy of the home from that period. It belongs to Žuto Brdo Culture because of the way it was ornamented. This type of the ornament is the most impressive ornamentation of the time.Harmoniously and imaginatively carved ornaments are filled with a white incrustation.
