Caption

Considerable effort and skill went into the design and creation of near eastern shaft hole axes in the region of Iran including Luristan in the 2nd millenium BC. The axes here had a variety of aggressive military functions from votive, to cutting, crushing or puncturing. To accomodate the central shaft hole most such weapons were made as a single piece using the lost wax method.
