An extraordinary handmade jadeite axe head replica, based on the Neolithic originals.

This replica forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition The world of Stonehenge.

This beautiful axe head has been hand-carved from jadeite, a high-quality form of jade. The piece is presented with a card detailing its provenance. Please note, due to the handmade nature of the item, the size and colouration may vary slightly from the image shown.

Many examples of Neolithic jade axe heads have been found across much of Britain and Europe, although the stone is mainly found in Mount Viso and Mount Beigua in Northern Italy. Axes were extraordinarily useful tools for farming and hunting, however jade axes were more likely to have been ceremonial than functional.

A one-of-a-kind ornament inspired by thousands of years of European history.
