Object Description

A finely cast bronze mace head from Luristan. The mace head is characterised by four protruding spikes arranged in an ‘x’ formation, with a hollow socket for the fitting of the wooden shaft. Although ferocious looking, much of the unearthed Luristan weaponry was ceremonial in function, used as dedicatory objects. The bronze features beautiful olive coloured patination to the surface, testament to the object’s burial in the ground.

Object Condition

Very fine. Beautiful olive green surface patina due to prolonged burial
