Impressive example of the Zulu "Iklwa" stabbing spear, made infamous in the wars against the British and subsequent Zulu and Shaka Zulu movies. Behind the shield, overhand and through the lungs preferred. Head and shaft are in great condition, with a tri-color brass wire wrapping over the joint of the haft and spearhead for reinforcement. This iklwa is from the main Zulu tribe in Mazinga, South Africa.
