Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Detail:  This spear / arrow was used to hunt human enemies.  It’s head is made of bone.  The original owner is a member of the Nimo Tribe located on the Aria River, a tributary of the May River.  Specifically used to hunt HUMANS, but not that frequently…  esotericstuff.comly for serious tribal disputes.  The head of the arrow/spear is made from the thighbone of a common lizard found in New Guinea.  The shaft is made of “pit-pit”, a type of bamboo.  I have had this in my personal collection since 2000.  I acquired this from a New Guinea weapons collector.  Circa mid-1900’s.   No stands are included.  Shipped in two sections.  For the Serious Collector.
