Crook & Flail
The crook (Heka) and flail (Nekhakha) were originally the attributes of the Ancient Egyptian god Osiris that became insignia of pharaonic authority. The shepherd's crook stood for kingship and the flail for the fertility of the land. The only extant pharaonic examples of both the crook and flail come from the tomb of Tutankhamun. Their staffs are made of heavy bronze covered with alternating stripes of blue glass, obsidian, and gold, while the flail's beads are made of gilded wood.
A lightsaber is a fictional energy weapon featured in the Star Wars universe. A typical lightsaber is over a meter in length total, usually consisting of a metal hilt, that projects a brightly-lit energy blade. The lightsaber is the signature weapon of the Jedi Order and their Sith counterparts, both of whom can use them for close combat, or to deflect blaster bolts.
