20 years ago, I photographed this overwhelmingly beautiful Late Gothic mace, ca. 1480-1500, preserved in almost pristine condition and retaining its original red green paint, the haft twisted (German: tordiert), the grip even retaining its original cord binding made of hemp, in the reserve collection of the Historic Museum Lucerne, Switzerland.
