Taa Keho (Marquesan spear)

This beautiful, traditional Marquesan spear was carved in oceanic rosewood. Throughout history, a spear had been used as a hunting and fishing tool, and as a weapon. Warfare was an integral part of Marquesan life. Weapons included slings, spears, and war clubs made of heavy dense wood. This spear is a fascinating and beautiful decorative piece that captures a different time in Marquesan history and plays with the imagination.
