The elements of decor of horse-bridle from burials of Steppe Scythia in form of “leaf-like” figures are examined. It is guessed, that sources of production of these articles, as by style and by technology, primary were situated aside of nomads` development of animal style and their semantic load was perceived, or by some way re-interpreted by Scythians already in practice of using. It is proposed to return to traditional treatment of these images as bird wings, because attempts, which exist in literature, to ground that they represent solitary ears of hoofed animal, have insufficient arguments.
