Curved and spurred, cali club. These are heavy, two handed clubs developed to be a very effective offensive and defensive weapon. The spur is designed to parry attacking blows, while the heavy wedge shaped head is designed to maximise the force placed on a small area. In many cases saplings were grown into the right shape, increasing the strength of the club and decreasing the necessary woodwork. Cali are the heaviest of the curved and spurred clubs, with a triangular cross-sectional shape. They are generally plain but decorated on the sides with a three panelled arrangement of high-relief designs. These panels were often painted and the cali clubs were used in dances or carried on festive occasions as well as being functional and deadly weapons.
