PUZZLE said "with bird's beak"
Kanak culture, New Caledonia
First half of the 20th century
Wood and plant fibers
Long. : 80; L.: 37 cm
(accident at the peak)
Puzzle or battle club in carved wood which owes its name to the stylized shape of its head. Indeed, the distal end, serving as a weight for the club, looks like a stylized bird: it stretches to a point similar to a long beak until it forms a kind of gutter ending obliquely giving rise to the crest of the animal; finally a small round protuberance recalls the eye.
The handle is long and cylindrical, covered on the proximal part with a recess of material forming a wide ring.
