Venetian Polaxe for the Foot Tournament 

  • Dated: first quarter of the 16th century
  • Culture: Italian
  • Measurements: head 43.3 cm. Overall length 196 cm

This “ascia da fante” has a head of characteristic two-part construction secured centrally by a transverse bolt with short pyramidal heads, with sharply tapering hollow-triangular spike on a moulded two-stage neck. The latter is extending to form a pair of straps each retained by six nails and fitted over the common neck of the axe-blade and pean.

The juncture is impaled by a transverse bolt, with symmetrical axe-blade with convex edge and a strongly cusped back edges. There’s a pierced quatrefoil inlaid with the maker’s mark, a leaping stag, and with moulded triangular pean (fur resembling ermine but with gold spots on a black ground) with a rectangular face cut with a diamond-pointed rusticated pattern over its surface.

There are three comparable examples are in the former armoury of The Council of Ten in the Palazzo Ducale, Venice (CX 1450, CX 1458 and A 897). For the first two see BOCCIA, Lionello G. & COELHO, Eduardo T., "Armi Bianche Italiane", Milan 1975, nos. 268 and 269, p.358. for the third see FRANZOI, Umberto, "L’Armeria del Palazzo Ducale a Venezia", Dosson (Treviso) 1990, no.321, pp. 113 and 195,fig. 108.

this is actually really great because it also has a meat-tenderizing function on the back for when you need to help out with the camp cookout later

the-old-folk-blues said: Sorry if I was unclear. I remember a while back you were considering your dream-team American Gods (one of my favourite books) cast, and you made a point of wanting the right ethnicity for Shadow. Which I found weird because I spent most of the book thinking of Shadow as a white guy until the "coffee-and-cream"(?) offhand description towards the end. So, thought I, if Shadow's ethnicity is so unimportant to be "revealed" towards the end of the book, then why does the actor’s ethnicity matter? 1.

neil-gaiman:

With the greatest respect, that might say more about how you read the book than it does about the book you thought you read. Take a look at American Gods again and let me know what you find…

Ughughughhhh why are people even arguing this yes Shadow is a person of colour why do we have to have this discussion literally every time a movie adaptation comes out where the entire cast is not white?
