Luristan Bronze Whetstone

An ancient Luristan whetstone with the socket in the form of a cast bronze ibex forepart protome with prominent horns.

Ca. 1500 - 800 BC.
Height: 8 1/4 in. (21 cm).

Luristan objects, including impressive and numerous decorative bronze horse trappings and weapons, are found mainly in western Persia. Luristan artifacts are most likely the work of the ancient Medes, an Indo-European group that eventually dominated Persia.
