Here’s a really large Neolithic greenstone Axe from the early Funnel Beaker Culture, dating to around 4000-3500 BC.

A massive axe in hand, weighing 3,1 kg. on the kitchenweight.

The axe is made out of greenstone that was polished into the four-sidet shape. 10-12 cm from the edge, the axe ‘hollows’, indicating the place where the axe was fastened to the shaft.

A large and impressive axe measuring: 29,5 x 10 x 5 cm / 11,6 3,9 x 2 inches. The size indicates that the axe was not made to be a tool but as an item of prestige.

Condition: Choice. Some roughness to the edge, but otherwise as made.

Ex. Danish Private Collection.

*Important: This item comes with a standard export license issued by Danish Ministry of Culture, when shipped outside Denmark.

The license can only be issued after sale, and may take some time.
