Southeast Asia, Vietnam, Dong Son Culture, ca. late 1st millennium BCE. A cast bronze axe head of lunate form with a hollow blade. The casting technique for Dong Son bronzes was demanding artistically and technically, and it seems likely based on archaeological investigation that they were made by local workshops staffed by specialists. These specialists shared knowledge throughout their geographic region, and axes like this one are constructed similarly to those from the Shang Dynasty and Warring States periods in China. Size: 2.35" W x 3.8" H (6 cm x 9.7 cm); 4.95" H (12.6 cm) on included custom stand.
