I think this paddle/war club is from Samoa, but I am still looking for an example that is close. Please help be smarter because of tiki if you know the origin of this. Nearly 4' long and very heavy. Seller mentioned Fiji and WWII, but I am not sure because of the color of the finish (although the carvings are filled with white ochre). Looking at the discoloring, it appears to have been used as a paddle at some point?

Mahalo for your assistance!
