An interesting Maori wahaika club. The base of the handle is well carved with a tiki form (one shell inlay missing) with the blade carved in the form of a head with deeply incised moko features comprising koru-based patterns. The original suspension cord survives, however this is frayed in places. This piece has a mid brown patina indicating a late 19th or early 20th century date. Measures c. 27cm in length.
