This extremely rare, 3,000-year-old Luristan bronze spearhead is a spectacular example of ancient Persian weaponry. Meant to fit atop a wooden shaft and thrown at an enemy or prey, this slender blade is made from some of the finest bronze of the Early Iron Age. This blade also displays the heavy, rich green patina for which the finest ancient bronzes are prized. First excavated in the 1920s, Luristan bronze is known for the elegance of its weapons, horse trappings, and decorative items. To find an ancient weapon of such beauty, in such wonderful condition, is truly extraordinary. Mounted on a stand made from acrylic glass Circa 1000 B.C. 26 1/2” length Lorestan (Luristan) bronze refers to a set of Early Iron Age bronze artifacts that have been recovered from the Lorestan and Kermanshah areas in west-central Iran. These items are believed to have been produced either by the Cimmerians or by Indo-European peoples of Media or Persia. They include a great number of ornaments, tools, ceremonial objects and weapons such as this incredible spearhead. The art of ancient Luristan mainly dates from the 12th to the 5th centuries B.C. and has become famous for its engraved bronze artifacts and castings of horse trappings, weapons, and standards. The most common of the Luristan bronzes are almost certainly the horse trappings and harness ornaments, with elaborate cheek pieces in the shape of ordinary animals such as horses or goats, as well as in the form of imaginary beasts like winged human-faced bulls.
