Description

Research notes

Club, early 20th century.

From the UQ Anthropology Museum exhibition 'In the Red; on the vibrancy of things' June 2012 - January 2013.

The Old Catalogue Card indicates that 7613 and 7614 are similar kinds of implements, with a cutting stone mounted at an angle on a handle, but 7614 had its stone missing. The handle for 7614 was more oval than 7613, and both bore markings along the handle, although of different patterns. Mrs Corbett believed these were fighting weapons.
