Nias Spear with Rattan Wraps
This Rare Nias Spear has a barbed spearhead (similar to a Philippine Falfeg) with a bronze sloped collar topping a palmwood shaft. The overall length of this spear is 65". Encircling the dark palmwood shaft are coiled woven rattan wraps. About half of the palmwood shaft is exposed as some of the coiled wraps may have fallen away over the years. The bronze collar appears to have been partially cleaned at some point.
