    A stone age spear [ancient stone spear head] fasten with skin [leather] in a museum in south-africa
    the spear head is original stone age.

    This spear was made by a later day [+_1950s] elephant/ivory poacher!
    [he was apparently caught at the carcass by the police and this spear then confiscated as evidence]


    Though I can not for a moment condone his act of poaching,
    I must admire his hunting skills and bravery. [or is it stupidity...?? ]

    Just imagine--stalking alone in the African bush AND killing an elephant with only a stone bladed spear!

    Wow!

    Shows you that with the right attitude and determination, any ordinary 'tool' can become a very dangerous and serious object.

    It makes me look with different eyes at my hunting knife when i go hunting! [LOL]

    Old world meet new world and it works.

    What was the size of the spear head?

    It looks like the spear shaft was cut off.

    Great raw leather work...
