BOXWOOD ‘Macehead' with handle

1 in stock

Turned from beautiful English boxwood this ‘Macehead' is inspired by the stone ones found in Neolithic digs here in Orkney. This shape of macehead was found on Sanday, Michaels home island, and therefore has a special significance to him. There has never been a handle found so Michael had fun with this one. The handle is made of poplar with has been carved, ebonised and coloured using hematite (iron ore, as used by the Neolithic people). It has been decorated with symbols drawn using pyrography and inspired by ones found on Neolithic pottery and carved stones. One of the symbols is the Brodgar butterfly, found nowhere else except for the Ness of Brodgar and has appeared there in several places. Very tactile and an interesting talking point to have in your home. Macehead 70mm x 90mm. Overall size 350mm x 90mm x 70mm
