Description
The abstract sculptural beauty of this ancient axe makes it easy to forget that it was originally a weapon of war. As we admire its purity of line, its elegant curves, we must also remember the heated battles in which it took part. If such a weapon had a voice, what tales it might tell about war and warriors, about battles won and lost, about victory and defeat. Though civilization has invented far more lethal weapons in the centuries since this axe saw duty, this ancient blade retains a primal power that has not faded with time. - (FZ.261)
