Large Mayan Stone Chert Hand Axe

Lot 0038A
**Originally Listed At $700**

Pre-Columbian, Mayan Territories, ca. 500 to 900 CE. An absolutely gorgeous piece of blue-grey, cream, and yellow chert that has been knapped into a large hand axe. Knapped stones are made using percussion, striking them with other stones; the process required to get them the correct shape requires training and skill. The axe has a nice heft and fits squarely in the hand. Comes with custom stand. Size: 2.6" W x 8.35" H (6.6 cm x 21.2 cm); height on stand: 9.45" (24 cm).
