A pair of silver spectacles was found placed on the eyes of a human being who was buried in a grave at Astana. These specks are shaped as spoon-bowls and are flat edged. The centre of the spoon-bowls is pricked like a strainer, to look through while travelling in the desert under the scorching sun.
