Description
Centuries ago, some ancient soldier offered this elegant weapon as a votive to the gods of war. Its graceful arced lines speak of its efficiency as an instrument of war, and larger versions were certainly used on the battlefields of the ancient Near East. In the time since, far more deadly weapons have evolved, yet this axe head conveys a primal power which stirs age-old instincts in us all. - (FZ.193)
