Seller: artancientltd (9,292) 99.7%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 390905585689 A rare and striking Bronze Age winged axe, dating to around 1400 BC. One of the finest preserved examples of this type that we have seen on the market. A weapon of powerful elegance, this axe is of a form prevalent across Europe during the Bronze Age, with curved blade edge and large wing like flanges. A wooden handle would originally have been inserted into the flanges, held in place by a cord. Axes such as this would have been used to clear the forests of Bronze Age Europe for human habitation. They are often found in hoards throughout Europe, some are believed to have been buried for safekeeping, whilst others are believed to have served a votive function. Many of them have been found in rivers and boglands, they were likely deposited in these contexts because of connections with a watery underworld. Length: 6 ¼ inches. Condition: Excellent, unrestored and exhibiting a beautiful, uniform patina, without the usual damage to the cutting edge. Provenance: Ex. German private collection, acquired 1970’s.
