A pair of Burmese Dha Hmyaung ?

These were recently listed as African at a recent auction site. I believe them to be Burmese Dha Hmyaung, probably the late 19th Century, early 20th century.

Your example, though better carved than mine, I think more closely resembles the facial features of my club; especially the ears and the nose. Do you know where it comes from?

Thanks for the insight. I should have noted that the 3 toed object is approx. 10" long and made of wood, twine bark, and pitch among other things. The claws are made of wood.

Two Unknown African Items?

I acquired these two items with a grouping and I haven't a clue. A Nigerian told me that these may be from Mali or the West African Bambara Tribe and they are used for healing. Does anybody else know...

African War Club??

I just picked up this war club or at least I think it is. It is 19" long, almost 4" in diameter at the head. It has the weight and feel of a fighting club, however, the face carving would make it...

Thank you Colin.I was happy with the Australian attributions, but to have it be a Plains Indian artifact is really exciting;would you guess the age to be 1880s/1890s?

The stone ax was listed in other places as Native American, but...

As a hand weapon, it looks impractical, however, I could see it as an "Indonesian-ish," spearhead; does it look like it had a provision in the past to secure it to a haft before being modified?
