A study on a metal artifact from Luristan bronzes collection of Reza Abbassi Museum was carried out in order to determine the elemental composition, metallographic data and corrosion products.
The sample under study is the head of an axe with a lion shape which looks to be a decoration Piece. The analytical technique used include scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for studing the microstructure, Inductively- coupled plasma (ICP-AES) for major as well as trace elemental analysis, and X-ray diffraction (XRD) for phase analysis. In this paper the results of corrosion study of this Luristan artifact are discussed and the conclusions were drawn accordingly.
