Swazi 'gebu' war club c262

War club from the Dokolwako area of Swaziland, under Chief Malamlela Magagula. These one piece clubs were made from the "sinyeye" or red ivory tree. This club style is a descendant of the sagila and lingedla clubs - the heartwood indentations have been widened until the head is completely flat on the top and bottom. In 18th century Scotland, this style of war club was called a "three wood". (Someone was going to make that joke no matter what, so I figured I'd say it first.)
