18th - 19th Century
Powerful and graceful at once this Fiji island club is a rare example. The form is reminiscent of an organic root carving. This skillfully crafted club is scarce due to its numerous bulbously carved ’bumps’ found all over the club. This object must have seen many battles because the age cracks are ancient and smoothed from handling. The engravings around the handle are elegant; and the overall patina is incredible from this piece’s great age.
This club stands 45 inches tall.
