It has incised and raised profile carvings. The point of the dagger has a unique stepped down form with a sharp edge. The upper part of the dagger is carved in the form of a stylized face profile.There is an inset area around the mouth and ear. These were typically made to represent the profile of a ruler or Shaman. It has great patina and light erosion in areas. This probably would have been used for ceremonial purposes only, as it is sharp all the way around it and wouldn't allow a person to hold it for use.
It has a custom stand and displays very nicely. This is an incredible artifact that gets attention. People are drawn to it. This is an amazing artifact that would be a great addition for any collection. This is a great piece of history, that can now be yours.
I have studied Pre-Columbian cultures for many years and I have hundreds of books in my office. I have cherished all my artifacts for as long as I have had them. Now its time for them to go to other collections. I have met many nice people and have had many great conversations.
