About the object
A club with a slightly simpler piece of ornamentation in the form of the body of a single snake. The head is pointing upwards. There is a human head suggested at the other end. The underside has been dyed red in its entirety, with the exception of the handle, which is decorated on both sides. The object comes from the Robert Beirer collection from Sipplingen, who worked for the New Guinea Company as a storeroom assistant at the end of the 19th century and sold a large collection to the Museum in Freiburg.
