Massim Sword Club
Trobriand Islands, Papua New Guinea
Ebony Wood
19th Century
30" Long
Provenance: Christie's London; Leo and Lillian Fortess collection, Hawaii

Traditionally, many Massim sword clubs are intricately carved over much of their surface. This piece is unusual in its simple elegance. The deep dark patina emphasizes the curvaceous shape of the club, as well as the relaxed composition of the bird perched atop the grip.

$3200
