Description
It is not known whether this mace head actually saw duty on the battle field, or whether it served only in a ceremonial capacity. In the Ancient Americal, such weapons often signified the high rank and power of those who carried them. Its abstract balance makes it appealing to the modern eye; we can almost forget its potential for danger. As we hold it, we cannot help but wonder where it has been, what secrets it might tell about the extremes of human nature. - (PF.1913)
