The transformation of ancient weapons into modern decorative items
In ancient times, numerous types of weapons were used in battles between different rulers and emperors. Today, these weapons are called old weapons or medieval weapons, but they are no longer used in war, but have been transformed into modern decorative items. However, these weapons have several other uses even in modern times, but their use as decorative items is the best known of all. In fact, they are used so often for decorative purposes nowadays that it appears that they are only for decoration and nothing else.
The main types of ancient weapons used as modern decorative items include knives, daggers, swords, throwing stars, battle axes, long bows, maces and spears. One or more of these weapons hang on the walls of hotels, resorts, offices, houses etc. as jewelry. However, the medieval weapons were designed for the purpose of war, but also show great aesthetics and craftsmanship. This characteristic of most old weapons makes them ideal for the purpose of decoration.
The weapons of antiquity are in demand all over the world today. They are mainly requested for the purpose of interior decoration. Because of this massive demand for these weapons, their replicas are made in large numbers to meet demand. Today, the real or ancient old weapons of war are generally seen in museums and old forts. The replicas that are made by highly qualified artisans are mostly used for decorative purposes.
The contemporary replicas of the old weapons are not very expensive and within easy reach of the ordinary man’s pocket. They are usually found in a variety of varieties on the market. These items are considered evergreen decorative objects that never go out of style. The ancient Indian weapons are comparatively more in demand than other weapons in this class. They remind us of the rich heritage of our country and serve as aesthetic decorative objects.
It is no exaggeration to say that the conversion of old weapons into modern decorative items has contributed significantly to the interior.
