Object Description

A large Luristan bronze tripartite spearhead with a wide biconvex blade resembling a leaf shape and a slightly raised midrib giving the blade depth. The blade tapers inwards to a quadrangular section leading to a flattened tang. The tang would have been attached to a wooden shaft creating the spear in its full entirety. This is a fine example of Luristan workmanship, with an aesthetically shaped blade and beautifully green patinated surface.

Date: Circa 1200 – 600 BC

Object History

Ex Abelita family collection, 1980-2015.

Object Condition
