Exhibition label :: G2 Changing Museum :: Stone sceptre or whetstone This four-sided bar is carved from a hard, fine-grained, grey stone. Although such a material would be suitable for a whetstone to sharpen blades, there are few traces of wear, suggesting that it was never used as one. It probably held a special, perhaps ceremonial or religious, significance. The design of the bar can be compared to Roman senatorial sceptres. The little cup at the bottom would have allowed it to rest on the knee when seated. The bar is crowned by an iron ring, upon which is mounted a copper alloy stag. British Isles, early AD 600s
bmo:PX_physical_description
Stone sceptre or whetstone comprising a four-sided stone bar of hard, fine-grained grey stone. Each end of the bar tapers to form a 'neck', and ultimately terminates in a carved, lobed knob, roughly onion-shaped and originally painted red. Each knob is enclosed by a cage of copper alloy ridged strips. At one end (interpreted as the bottom), the cage consists of six strips and is attached to a cup-shaped piece of copper alloy. The cage at the other end (interpreted as the top) consists of eight copper alloy strips surmounted by an iron ring (see 1939,1010.205.b), upon which is mounted a copper alloy stag (see 1939,1010.205.a). Immediately below each knob are four human masks carved in relief, one on each of the stone bar's four faces. Each mask is different; three are clearly bearded and five are either beardless or bearded with an exposed chin. The masks are approximately triangular in shape, ending in curved oval terminals. All faces of the stone are extremely smooth and show very little trace of wear.
