ICON's XENA Warrior Princess
This web page contains a description and photos of the Xena
Chakrum that I won on eBay (Item # 1403476106) on 15 January
This is an overall view of ICON's XENA Chakram mounted in the rock
base, but without a plaque. I did watch a Xena show after receiving
this item and noticed that the most recent Chakrum that Xena uses is
a different design. The gold and silver coloration is a plating over
the base Aluminum material. In this photo, the silver color looks
like chrome plating. The Paua stones are plugs of thick Abalone shell
that has been inlaid into holes on the gold segments. These are not
always flush with the surface. Although they look OK, the workmanship
could be better.
The two sides of the Xena Chakram have different art patterns. This
is the obverse side that you usually see in an ICON
This photo is an enlargement of the obverse side of ICON's Xena
Chakram. You can see the raised edges of the inlaid Paua shell
The reverse side of ICON's Xena Chakram is much more attractive than
the obverse side.

My overall assessment of ICON's Xena Chakram is that it is a good
collectable for Xena fans, but the workmanship is inferior to that
done by the Sikh artisans of India who made real Chakram more than a
century ago. The Xena Chakram looks pretty sharp displayed on a
table, especially if you stand back more than 1 or 2 metres. If you
are a collector of Xena memorabilia, then this Chackrum is a must for
your collection. If you are interested in real primitive artifacts,
stick to the ones that are made by the Sikh artisans.
