Swazi Zulu 'iwisa' war club

An unusually long Swazi Zulu 'Iwisa' war club (two hand length!) with four woven copper wire bands on the haft and a larger band around the head. This type of weapon is usually referred to as a "knobkerrie", but that nomenclature was imposed by the Dutch south Afrikaans and is not a native term. Collected in the mid 1900's.
