Thumbs up

I AGREE WITH JIMMY THEY ARE MOST LIKELY FROM NEW GUINEA OR SOME OF THE SURROUNDING ISLANDS. IF THEY HAVE A LIGHT CANE SHAFT WITH A CARVED WOOD HEAD THEN THEY ARE LIKELY ARROWS (THE ARROWS IN THAT REGION ARE FLAT AT THE BACK AND HAVE NO FLETCHING)
THE SPEARS ARE USUALY ALL HEAVY WOOD AND LARGER AND HEAVIER THAN ARROWS. THE MARKING ON THE ARROW ARE TO SHOW WHO OWNED THE ARROW AND PERHAPS THE TRIBE AS WELL AS SYMBOLS FOR GOOD LUCK IN HUNTING OR WAR. THERE IS QUITE A VARIETY OF POINT TYPES IN THE REGION.
