These rattan creations are marvels of fiber weaving, blending basket-like forms and three-dimensional, openwork elements into surreal abstractions to fit over the head of the wearer...

A Solomon Islands carved wood crescent shaped Samoan club. Appears (from our familiarity with Chinese furniture) to be ironwood. The incised decoration is partially filled with remaining encrustation. Good condition with minor surface wear (judging from which, a good patina has accumulated on this quite hard wood.) The flattened end of the grip, however, might possibly have at some point extended a bit longer (though there is patina to that surface as well.) Length, 25 1/8 inches (63.8 cm)

With a very dark patina from age, the horn shows signs of wear on the base, where it would have been held. The ancestral figure sits above a magical beast, with two crocodiles moving around the base, and has a powerful and striking demeanor...
