Two famous archaeological Bronze Age clay artifacts were found in 1903 from the Serbian village of Dupljaja and are called "Dupljajska kolica" ("the carts from Dupljaja"). They are about 3,500 years old.
On the miniature carts (or chariots), anthropomorphic figurines show bird shaped heads.

It is believed that the figure of the cart is a fertility deity, while the ducks who are pulling their companion are also a symbol of fertility.
The deity is decorated from the head to the bottom of the skirt with spirals or concentric circles and a cross within a circle was incised at the bottom of the wagon. Such a cult chariot could have been drawn through the fields to ban evil spirits and to ensure the fertility of crops.
Archaeologists have also found at this location the remains of an old Slavic city called Karaš, which was the capital and the largest fort of Banat in the 11th century. The remains include part of an old church and part of a building which supposedly was a prince's palace, as well as several hundred coins that originated from central and western Europe, and pieces of gold and silver jewels.January 12, 2014 at 11:26 pm #425682
