A war hammer from Ridley Scott’s action drama Kingdom of Heaven.
The illegitimate son of a French baron, Balian (Orlando Bloom) joins his father Godfrey (Liam Neeson) on a great crusade to the holy land, seeking redemption after killing his half-brother. Made a knight, he travels to Jerusalem to defend the city from the legendary Muslim leader, Saladin (Ghassan Massoud).
Muslim warriors wielded their ornate, hooked war hammers in several scenes, notably the epic battle between Balian and Saladin’s forces. They were seen brandishing the weapons as they emerged from the siege towers, repelled by waves of burning oil.
This eye-catching piece features a smooth wooden handle and solid resin head intricately detailed and realistically painted with reds, browns, greens and blacks to resemble well-worn, oxidised brass or copper. Its squared-off head features elegant patterning within a rectangular border. A curved, notched hook extends downwards from the back of the head, giving the hammer a brutal yet graceful look.
Notched and worn in places from use during production, the weapon remains in excellent overall condition.
Materials: Resin, Wood.
