hmmm...that's a beautiful item and i can see why you think it may be of South Pacific origin.
I will also say that given it's form it looks more like a fighting staff than simply something to aid in walking or for ceremony. So i wonder if this is not better suited for the Ethno forum than Miscellaneous. But i have no knowledge of fighting staffs from the South Seas, or for that matter, any where else, so it hard to say how to categorize it. Still a seriously nice and collectable bit of carving.
