c.4,000 to 3,000 B.C. A rare and attractive Neolithic Green Jasper flaked axe, Tenerian Culture, Sahara Desert Region, Niger, Africa. A well worked and defined little axe, skillfully fabricated from Green Jasper; bi-facially worked but with a largely flat underside and most working on the upper side which features a raised medial ridge, flaked to edges and the carefully pressure flaked all round to sharpen and almost denticulate the blade edges. The axe is in lovely condition throughout with no damage or signs of use but with a nice old desert patination. The size of the axe and the fact that it was made from green jasper may suggest that this axe was used in a votive or sacred deposition context as an offering to the Gods. A very nice and appealing little Neolithic axe, 75mm long x 36mm wide10mm thick.
