(Reproduction in wood of the Mammen Ceremonial Axehead)
The Mammen Axehead is a ceremonial axehead retrieved from the Mammen grave dig in what is modern-day Denmark. It has been dated to roughly 900 - 950 AD.
The axehead was constructed from iron, and inlayed with silver and gold. Every surface on the axehead was intricately decorated.
My piece is a 'reproduction' in wood of this axehead.
Check out the National Museum of Denmark to learn more about this piece and the Mammen dig.
The original, held at the National Museum of Denmark.
