The surfaces are moderately smells, the Polish must be excellent. The edges are still sharp. The small hole is slightly tapered and very well polished.

Notes by Prof. Salviati: This kind of chisel-shaped blade is typical of the late Neolithic cultures of north-west China: it probably derives from similar, elongated axes crafted by the Dawenkou and Longshan cultures of eastern China. The present blade, match, in shape and material, a similar one presented in one of the gallery's past auctions: https://new.liveauctioneers.com/item/45157604 wave’
