Greenstone mere club carving XL. We love the colour of this beautiful artwork!
A mere club carving is a hand club, carved out of bone, wood or pounamu greenstone.
Beautiful extra large mere club on a wooden stand with koru design. Beautiful dark green pounamu club.
The club comes with a stand (see photo – please note the mere on this stand is a different mere and has been sold).
The mere is carried in the warrior’s flax belt. The Mere was a treasured Heirloom, passed from Generation to Generation and usually only Chiefs of high standing possessed them. Mere were lethal in the hands of a competent warrior. A Chief would rather be killed by his own Mere, than lose his life to anothers in times of capture.
Nowadays the mere symbolises the facing and overcoming of life’s challenges and difficulties.
