Excerpt from Bladed Warclubs From British Guiana
Originally, apparently they differed in shape according to the tribe which made them; but these differences, as in so many other similar cases, seem now to be somewhat lost, and most of the various forms of tiki may be seen in possession of any one of the tribes. The commoner forms are three in number. One is four-sided; that part which is grasped in the hand is square, but from that point the sides gradually curve outward, the one end much more than the other, until they are abruptly cut off and end in both directions in flat surfaces at right angles to the sides. This form appears to have been appropriated by the "Macusis."
