New Guinea Disc Clubs (SOLD)
South East New Guinea
With old label "Rigo BNG"
These clubs were highly prized weapons both for their effectiveness and because of the immense amount of labour required to produce a pierced basalt disc of this type. They are exceptional in retaining their fine binding and feather work decoration; in almost all known examples this is damaged or missing so that the stone disc is no longer secured in place.
Lengths: 97 cm to 122 cm (38 to 48 in)
Collected by the London Missionary Society at the old mission station in Rigo, British New Guinea
