For the lover of antiquities, the term bronze carries a number of meanings. In the 19th century a Danish museum employee decided to organize the museum's collection by dividing the artifacts into time periods based on man's changing tool types. Thus, the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age have come to represent three distinct time periods in man's technological and cultural history. When man discovered that by alloying tin with copper he could create a material substance much stronger than copper, the resulting bronze technology changed many aspects of his culture. One monumental change was in the weaponry, fine examples represented here in this splendid dagger, powerful axe head and arrowheads. Expert craftsmanship combine with an aesthetic eye to create weapons that are lifted into the realm of art. Their dynamic power and spirited essence can be seen and felt through their exquisite design and tactile surfaces. These sculptural weapons touch a chord deeply buried but never forgotten, common to all mankind. - (FZ.290)
