Kalinga Walking Stick
Luzon Mountains, The Philippines
Cast bronze, wood, iron and rattan
Early 20th century
53" tall with a 4 1/2" bronze finial

A rare figural Kalinga walking stick with bronze finial. The shaft is the same as a Kalinga spear and figural finials are rare. As natives were encouraged to not carry spears they still needed walking sticks for the hard mountainous terrain, and special walking sticks were used by headmen who helped and worked with the Westerners
