This Rare old Fijian Gata War Club was formerly in the collection of Professor Harry Bober (1915-1988) former Professor of Medieval Art at New York University's Institute of Fine Arts and is carved from a beautiful rich brown hardwood. The heavy club measures just over 39" in length. The spur on the club's head has some loss and there are a few cracks in the head and shaft as well as some minor dents and chips. The head has some remnants of shellac. A handsome old example of early traditional Fijian Weaponry!
