Very good ones, macon. But the second to last image you posted is the trasure of Vilena, from near Valencia in Spain, dated to the 10th century bc, so a similar period to that of Eberswalde, which might explain their similarity.
Really? Thanks for a correction. It was besides text of Eberswalde but I was not reading everything. Yes, they look similar. I apologize for my mistake.

No problem, they're strikingly similar, probably because those cultures weren't isolated and there were influences going in both directions.
