Item details

Vintage from before 2000

Short handled club used by Australia's aboriginal peoples. A waddy, nulla nulla, or hunting stick is an Aboriginal Australian club for use in hunting and fighting.

This is a heavy club constructed of carved timber with decorative hot poker work and extensive pecking, showing lizards, snakes, kangaroos, and centipedes. Waddies have been used in hand-to-hand combat, and were capable of splitting a shield, and killing or stunning prey. In addition to this they could be employed as a projectile as well as used to make fire and make ochre. They found further use in punishing those who broke Aboriginal law.

Older, used, overall good condition with a fine patina from use. Solid, very heavy hardwood. Measures about 19 1/2 inches long.
