E078203 Club detail

E078203 club, wood, south-east, Australia.

This wooden club is from south-eastern Australia. The club is carved from a single piece of wood. It has a straight handle with a pointed base. The diameter of the club increases towards the top to form the club's head. Eight concentric grooves have been carved around the head of the club. Above the carved design the head tapers to a point. The club was collected by Alexander Morrison in the late 19th or early 20th Century. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1982.
