Description
The use of costly silver and the slender sculptural purity of its lines suggest that this was a ceremonial weapon rather than a functional one. It nonetheless radiates a mysterious, hypnotic power, as if it was witness to ancient rituals and could speak of secrets that lie deep within us all. - (FZ.010)
