The earliest art of the Germanic tribes is documented by bronze artifects and embossed works of gold. The ornamentation is strictly geometrical, the figurative art focuses on the representation of people and animals. During the Iron Age, the ceramics became an important carrier of ornamentation. From the 5th century B.C. the Celtic influence on the art of the Germans could no longer be overlooked. Besides wood carving, the Germans also created sculptures in stone.

The ornamentation of the animal style, which dominated all areas of artistic creation forms the culmination and conclusion of the prehistoric Germanic art.
