Greenstone mere club carving – large. A mere is a hand club, carved out of bone, wood or pounamu (greenstone).
Are you looking for a large Maori club made from greenstone? We have a beautiful large mere with lovely dark shades of green and with platted cord.
The mere is carried in the warrior’s flax belt. Mere are a treasured Heirloom, passed from Generation to Generation and usually only Chiefs of high standing possessed them. The mere were lethal in the hands of a competent warrior, and a Chief would rather be killed by his own club, than lose his life to another’s in times of capture.
Nowadays the greenstone mere symbolises the facing and overcoming of life’s challenges and difficulties.
