Bronze Spear Point

$1,500.00

Luristan Province.

Spear point with beautiful rich green patina. A weapon such as this would have been carried by foot or mounted soldiers and either thrown or used in stabbing attacks on enemy ranks. The term Luristan references artifacts made by a society of semi-nomadic people that once lived in the mountainous region of Northwest Iran.

Little is known of this ancient culture but the most impressive traces are that of the bronze artifacts they left behind that can be found in parts of present-day Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan. These include highly decorative equipment for their horses, ceremonial containers and numerous weapons ranging from simple utilitarian pieces on up to elaborate masterpieces of warfare.
