The weapon in front of us is a cast bronze sword that belongs to the objects known as “Luristan bronzes”. The typologies are very varied, ranging from weapons, tools and horse accessories. Most of the bronze pieces were made as funerary objects, as this metal was part of the funerary rituals. Bronze symbolised a person’s desire for immortality and its importance is confirmed by the thousands of objects found in tombs and shrines.
