A Luristan ceremonial cast bronze macehead of tubular shape; upper register with numerous almond-shaped knobs, below which a row of decorative loops and whorls in relief.

Condition: Complete; with encrustations; good stable bronze with patches of olive-green patination.

It is thought that such items may have been mounted on a shaft as a symbol of rank, perhaps derivative from a true weapon of similar form.

For details of maces, see pp 90-97; Catalogue of the Ancient Persian Bronzes in the Ashmolean Museum by P.R.S. Moorey; Oxford University Press 1971.
