This large 46cm (18") Carved Maori Wahaika Club on Stand makes a great gift for a collector, as a 21st gift, and as a corporate gift.
Wahaika means "mouth of the fish". It is a pre-European Maori Club used in close combat, designed to be used in a thrusting motion, using the sharpened side of the club. Wahaika carry the figure of a man on the other edge, its eyes decorated with native paua shell. Note that it is also carved on the reke, the butt of the club.
This is the largest wahaika we have. It comes to you on a carved wooden stand with wooden struts.
Proudly made in New Zealand from Pacific Kauri.
The stand measures approximately 49.5cm x 14cm (19 1/2" x 5 1/2") at the bottom edge. It is a good solid block of wood, with beautiful carving.
