I certainly noticed it whilst viewing the catalogue, quite a striking item.
It is hard to remember every thread posted but Spiral offered up a dagger in similar style a little while back?
Sri Lanka was mentioned as a posibility?
Perhaps Spiral can repost an image as they are now gone.
Certainly very nice.
PS the auction house wasn't very helpful this time around, I asked for about a dozen images that were not online and it fell on deaf ears.
