No weapon is so sharpened as your cat’s claws. In past, the ancient civilization knew how harmful could be cat’s claws and got inspiration by their shape to make sharpened weapons. In Huaca de la Luna, near the city of Trujillo (Peru) archaeologists discovered a pair of sharpened metal claws unhearthed in a nobleman’s tomb. With the metal claws they found a sceptre, earrings and a mask. Archaeologists suppose the claws were used from the local people, in the past centuries, during combats. Interesting to know how cats have inspired us for so many centuries.
