Prehistoric Stone Age Neolithic Boat Axe - 1900 BC

An exceptional Nordic boat axe, dating to approximately 1900 BC. One of the most iconic objects of the Neolithic age, with an outstanding provenance.

The axe of eponymous boat like form, with central perforation for a wooden pole.  

A delicately carved weapon, surely intended for ceremonial or votive purposes. Very little art survives from the European Neolithic age; boat-axes such as this are therefore much admired and sought after works that demonstrate the skill of the Nordic craftsmen.
