Club

Description
Up until the 19th century, Indian nations in former British Guiana used clubs for warfare and as items of ceremonial regalia. They are made from a hardwood (likely Brosimum sp.), are incised with stone tools and in-filled with white clay. Cotton fibre assists the hand with gripping the item when used.
