Bartle Bay, Massim, Papua New Guinea
Height 38cm

An unusually large and sculpturally elaborated figure, early 20th century or older, which was probably a staff handle. Its size seems to preclude its having been the top of a lime spatula as most smaller figures from the area were.

Formerly in the Kirby Kallas-Lewis collection of Massim objects.
