Ancient Near East, Iran, Amlash culture, ca. 13th to 10th century BCE. A beautifully-preserved example of a short spear head. Triangular, and with a pronounced mid-rib, this would have been attached by its long tang to a wooden handle. The edges retain their deadly sharpness. Size: 7.6" L x 1.3" W (19.3 cm x 3.3 cm)

Ancient Iran was rich in dramatic bronze creations. A class of nomadic horse lords and ladies commissioned bronze items from artisans in urban centers. Cast in a single piece using the lost wax casting technique, this weapon and ones like it ultimately came to grace the graves of elite warriors.

Provenance: Whisnant Gallery, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, acquired over twenty years ago
