Club Gata Fiji Islands Wood H. 103 cm Provenance... - Lot 71 - Giquello
Club Gata Fiji Islands Wood H. 103 cm Provenance : Former private collection, France: according to family tradition, acquired around 1930. Passed on by descent and remained in the family ever since. Old and imposing "Gata" club, meaning Snake in Fijian. This club features typical swellings on the spur, below the stylized snake's mouth. The patina of the wood is remarkable and bears witness to its age. Bibl: Fiji, Art and life in the Pacific, Steven Hooper, Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, 2016, Fig.254 for a similar example.
