Guest Book
A beautyful polished neolithic jade axe, dating to the Hồng Bàng period (early 3rd. - late 2nd. Mill. BC.

The axe measure 90 x 46 mm and a nice thin body.

The edge is razor sharpe except for a few minor dents. One side is completely polished the other side is also polished except from some roughness in the original stone.

A rare & choice quality axe.

Around 1200 BC. the distinctive and famous Dong Song culture evolved as a bronzeage culture and the use of stone tools would predate Dong Song.

Stonetools were used in the first few centuries of Dong Song, simultaniously with bronze tools and weapons.
