The Kukukuku are a small and previously violent group living mainly in the high, mountainous region of south-western Morobe, a province of Papua New Guinea.

K. McCarthy in his book Patrol into Yesterday: My New Guinea Years. The club is in exceptional condition . Note the woven binding at the top that holds the stone in place.Length 69cm long. Diameter of stone head 9cm Please view the photos carefully as they make up an important part of the description Originating Region: Australia
