Closely related to the Siberian Ice Maiden discovered in 1993, the Siberian Ice Horseman was discovered by Vyacheslav Molodin in 1995 in a Pazyryk burial kurgan in the Altai region of Russia that dated back to Scythian times over 2000 years ago. its discovery is considered one of the greatest findings in Russian archaeological history due to its near perfect preservation and its unique physical characteristics; a large tattoo on the right shoulder of an elk and two long blond platted braids that reached down past his shoulders.
According to information of the Siberian department of the Russian Academy of Sciences,investigation of the Ice Horseman shows that he was in fact just an ordinary Scythian soldier. The department however refuse to release anymore information regarding the cause of death and age of the ice horseman until conclusive tests have been completed.
A key distinctive feature of the Ice Horseman is his tattoo on his right shoulder, one that is very common and observable among the Scythians that lived within the area of his place of rest. It is one of the most well preserved examples of ancient tattoo art that hasn't faded or been destroyed
