11th Century AD, Chola, Brihadishvara Temple, Thanjavur
Chola Blade with the typical early-late medieval Indian quillons.
You can see the same quillons in modern Khandas some times Talwars. Termed the Hindu Basket Hilt. There is now an addition of hand guards and appendage below the pommel.
Cant really make it out.Hand guard, Hoysala, statue from Mysore, veera ballala 2 period (1173 – c. 1220 CE )

Same image - I forgot where this was from, but its likely a Sunga piece of the same era.
It's a female warrior as well.
Yeah, these ununiform, multiple protrusion "parrying" shields are interesting. Some had material attached to the sides.
