E077017 club, wood, south-eastern Australia.

This wooden club is from south-eastern Australia. The paddle or sword-like club has been carved from a single piece of wood. The long blade of the club tapers towards the base and is shaped to form a grip. Both ends of the club are rounded. The club was collected by Alexander Morrison in the late 19th or early 20th Century. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1979.
