WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY saleI offer for sale very rare 19th century Fijian kiakavo war club dating to ca. 1800-1850. The kiakavo was the standard weapon of the rank-and-file warrior of Viti Levu island. It has a nice deep, rich patina befitting of its age. The club measures 103 cm in length and weighs well over 4 kg). The lakena (shaft) measures about 6 cm in diameter. Both the prominent meto (spur) and the roughened underside of the uluna are dyed red, a very rare, museum-grade 19th-century Oceanic war club that would make a wonderful addition to any private or curatorial collection of Oceanic and/or ethnographic weaponry. A GREAT PIECE
