This small Polynesian sword club has an expanded lenticular shaped head that tapers to a point at the end. There is a significant amount of incised art on both sides as depicted in the photo below. Two round and colorful snail doors are attached on each side to provide an illusion of a face with eyes. One side has an unidentified bright red object attached near the tip. This item is in very good condition with the exception that tip has impact damage at the end only. It is still a very attractive piece. Length = 50 cm ; Weight = 376 gm
