This Rennell Island Ua Club measuring 19 7/8" in length. Smaller than typical examples, this could be a child's club. There is a crescent shaped raised curve on either side of the club as is typical of these type. The grip and rounded canister pommel have patination from handling. There is a thin horizontal area of what appears to be tape residue on on side of the club's head.

A similar form can be seen in An Ethnological Sketch of Rennell Island by Kaj Birket-Smith on page 123. This piece was field collected by documentary film maker and author Maslyn Williams during the mid 20th century.
