IMPRESSIVE OLD PAPUA NEW GUINEA WAR CLUB


We purchased this war club from a New Guinea born Australian
He collected quality (non-tourist) items over many years and as far
as he can remember he bought this incredible looking thing from the Kuku Kuku people
of the Eastern Highlands of New Guinea in 1951 or 1952 and reputedly
it was not new then
It is of stone and wood construction with Cassawary feather decoration
It measures approximately 68cm long (not including the feathers)
The amazingly shaped head is stone and of course the club section is
wood that terminates with a phallic shaped end
This is one a four interesting New Guinea artifacts
we purchased from this collector
