The following two belt buckles feature the same design of a wild boar in flight, but they are executed in different ways.

The buckle on the left is made from two metals: brass and sterling silver. The boar is carved in relief, and the fur coat is visible. This buckle is a more detailed and intricate piece of craftsmanship.

The buckle on the right is made from a single metal, brass. The boar is also carved in relief, but the fur coat is not visible and the muscles of the boar come to the fore. This buckle is a more minimalist and modern piece of design.
