wide at top: 5 in, L: 21 in, diameter of ball: 7.5 in
The Paul Dyck Plains Indian Buffalo Culture Collection, acquired through the generosity of the Dyck family and additional gifts of the Nielson Family and the Estate of Margaret S. Coe
Ball-headed type club. Piece of wood, tapered to bottom with pointed bottom, and ridged on interior. Hole drilled through on bottom, 3" from bottom, probably for some type of attached tanned hide strip handle. The ball head is darker color - almost black. On center of body (both sides) are two (2) 3/8" W x 1 ¾"L indented or carved areas - appear to be decorative. Immediately above the top indentation is carved design of 3 triangle-like figures in dark color. At a right angle between the two indentations is a carved/scratched line - 4"L, also a dark color. The lower portion of the body/handle is darker color overall with marks and scratches - seemingly decorative. Not heavy object, so probably a presentation piece. Nice patina overall.
