A release from my personal collections.
A very nice Solomon Island war club from the Malaita Island provence.
This example measures 94cms long. The timber is hard and light as is the want for a good fighting club.
The club is of an oval form section for most of the length and it tapers to a more round form approx 25cms from the base.
Both the base and the head show tribal designs carved in relief and the head shows nasal like protrusions, one to each side with a very old repair to one.
A very nice club in very good conditon with a nice warm age patina.
This club comes with a custom elevated galley stand, image available on request.
