Club Knobkerrie

Zulu people 

South Africa

Early 20th Century

 

This is one special Zulu club. What drove me to it in the first place is the "purity" and extreme tension of its lines which the sculptor brillantly achieved through the choice of a sligtly curbed shaft ending in a perfectly conical flared butt, as well as through the selection of a very fine grain two-toned kiaat wood. A gem.
