|Luristan culture, 11th-8th centuries BC Luristan, western Iran,The style of this cast bronze axe-head links it to the region of Luristan in western Iran.With flared blade Excellent condition and very nice green patina. The mountains of western Iran were home to a long tradition of metalworking. By the first millennium BC the kingdom of Elam, which had dominated Luristan, was weakened and the bronze workers of Luristan were free to develop their industry. The decline in the production of Luristan bronzes, some time in the later seventh century BC, was possibly due to the growing political unity of the Medes and Persians and their increasing influence on the area.
