Celtic Gynomorphic Sword

This sword is a collaboration between myself and Nick Anger.  Nick Made the blade and I made the handle.  The concept for the sword was Nick's.  We were talking about the celtic anthropomorphic swords and Nick thought it would be interesting to do one that was clearly female.  Nick provided the celtic style blade, and I tried to run with the concept.  The handel was cast in tin bronze in 4 separate pieces.

There are, or course, many possible interpretations of it's symbolism.  For me it's a totem of feminine power that co-opts the more traditional phallic symbolism of the sword.  After all, every man and his penis emerged from a woman's womb.
