African traditional ball cane

Size: 75cm - 90cm(H)

African tribal cane from Malawi

A beautiful if not unusual African ball cane. This walking stick has been hand carved out of light brown wood with images of Elephants on the shaft of the cane. At the top of the handle the cane has been carved out with a hollow center and a small ball has been carved inside the wood. The ball moves around but can not fall out as it was carved into the wood at the same time as the cane was made.

This wonderful African tribal cane / walking stick originates from Malawi and has been carved by a member of the Barotse tribe. Malawi is a small landlocked country in Southern Africa bordering Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. This hand carved Malawi tribal cane can be carved to any size, so if you are looking for a certain size cane, let us know and we will arrange that for you.

We have a large selection of African hand carved tribal canes to view in our gallery should you be looking for a certain cane. Each tribal cane is an "original" work of art, individually handmade, no two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each piece. The original nature of tribal art will be reflected by variances from the tribal cane as shown, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical.
