Fantastic Culcula war club from Fiji. The patina of this club brings it back to possibly the 19th century.
"Culacula," priest's or chief's hardwood club, with a narrow paddle like blade, serrated edges and a cross rib at the base. The thin edge of the blade was used as a weapon, for cutting and snapping through bone.
Publication: for a similar club see Fergus Clunie, "Yalo I Viti," Fiji Museum, 1986, pp. 119 & 185, and Clunie, "Fijian Weapons and Warfare," 1977, p. 55 - 56.
