Description

It consists of an aged, old spear head that is crafted in carbon steel and long in length for a typical Roman spear. Silver wire wraps around the base and upper edge of the lance, while gold-hued brass plating wraps its center. Contrary to the image, the wrapping passes through cut-outs in the spear-head. The wrapping passes through cut-outs in the spear-head. Inscribed on the central sleeve is the phrase Lancea et clavus Domini (which means lance and nail of the lord). The original artifact has something of a reputation, being known by many names (including the Lance of Longinus and the Spear of Destiny), and is sometimes rumored to possess mystical power.

Historical Period

Ancient Rome

Inspiration

Fresco by Fra Angelico, Dominican monastery at San Marco, Florence, showing the lance piercing the side of Jesus on the cross (c. 1440). This spearhead is a recreation of the holy lance, found in Austria. The original artifact has something of a reputation, being known by many names (including the Lance of Longinus and the Spear of Destiny), and is sometimes rumored to possess mystical power.
