Human Femur Bone War Club with Copper Blade
A modern interpretation of tribal art that embraces a macabre curiosity in mankind’s drive towards superiority. This unique piece features a walnut haft carved down to a tenon that is fitted to the human femur finial. The club head is resin filled for stability and the copper tang of the blade is cold peened to the peen block at the back of the club. The tenon join is also pinned in place. Thin pig skin is seen around the transition. A copper cap has been formed and fitted to the ball of the femur.
Blade: 6 3/4″ long
Head length: 10 1/2″
Overall length of shaft: 21″
