African Swazi Lingedla War Club
This hard to find Swazi Lingedla club measures 26 1/2" tall. It has great form with a fluted head, with both depressions (top and bottom) that were intended to hold a layer of fat that kept the head from cracking. This example is carved from a hard light colored wood and still retains some of the bark along the shaft.
The fluted head has some scrapes and scratches toward the front, and appears to be from the second half of the 20th Century.
