Wood and iron, approx. 36 x 3"
Three iron-tipped spears. Each has a differently shaped point, likely indicating they were used for different purposes. The iron tips have begun to rust with age. The one shown in the center most-closely resembles a Zulu spear. The spear shown at the bottom of the image has barbs and likely was used for fishing - it most closely resembles a spear from the Philippines. The spear shown at the top is a simple metal-tipped spear which closely resembles a ceremonial spear from Ghana.
