Fijian Culacula Club

Fijian War Club, Fijian Culacula Club with maori designs

Object Type: War Club

Locality: Fijian islands

Artist: Unknown

Circa: 1850

Description: These Fijian culacula clubs were a fierce battle weapon. The spade shape head has two striking edges, each stepped cutting serrations. It’s said these edges were capable of cutting through bone and this was especially true with the related culacula club. This example has been carved by a maori carver and has decorative elements typical of Maori Weapons. It is likely that a Maori travelled to Fiji on a whaling vessel and then married and settled.

This section is a part of optimizing this web site page for the keyword Papua New Guinea War club.  In the world of the internet, a website will be visited by google bots. Amongst other things, the length of the article or page should be over 300 words. This makes it necessary to add additional words so that a page ranks better.  What you are reading right now is a part of that optimization process.
The process can be frustrating and I hope you can excuse me for placing this extra text. Three hundred words may not sound a lot but it is often more than needed for a punchy description.
It is not only keyword that I use this technique for. I have used it for other artifacts and artworks from Papua New Guinea and oceanic art.
