Description
Prehistoric, Paleolithic Quartzite 2 AMAZING HUGE PALEOLITHIC HAND AXES / CHOPPERS FROM THE ARCHAEOLOGIST PEDRO DIAZ ALVAREZ COLLECTION - (2)
PALEOLITHIC - Portugal

THIS TIME I AM OFFERING 2 MAGNIFICENT EXAMPLES OF ANCORIENSE LITHIC INDUSTRY. TWO BEAUTIFUL AND LARGE HAND AXES/CHOPPERS CARVED IN QUARZITE WITH A WEIGHT OF AROUND 2 KILOS EACH.
THEY WERE FOUND IN VILA PRAIA DE ANCORA, PORTUGAL.
ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING ASPECTS OF THESE 2 PIECES IS THE ABSENCE OF EROSION: THE EDGES ARE STILL REALLY SHARP, SOMETHING NOT VERY COMMON IN THESE PIECES THAT IN MANY CASES ARE MODELED BY THE OCEANIC TIDES AND THE STRONG WINDS (PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE LAST PHOTOGRAPH).

1ST PIECE, 17 X 13.5 cm. 2115 GRAMS

2ND PIECE 14 X 17 cm. 1895 GRAMS

NOW THROUGH CATAWIKI I AM OFFERING THE BEST ANCORIENSE & CAMPOSANQUIENSE ARTIFACTS YOU CAN FIND IN THE NET

PROVENANCE: FROM MY FATHERS THE GALICIAN ARQUAEOLOGIST AND WRITER PEDRO DIAZ ALVAREZ.
ALL THESE PIECES WERE FOUND AND COLLECTED DURING THE 60S AND 70S. SOME OF THEM CAN BE SEEN IN GALICIAN MUSEUMS.
100% ORIGIN AND AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEED.
DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK FOR ADDITIONAL INFO.
