Physical description

Long ceremonial spear made of wood. A short point tops a head carved into four curved, down-pointing blades, each with a sharp shoulder, along one side only. The head is decorated with white pigment in vertical stripes and horizontal lines. Where the head meets the shaft is a thick, deeply cracked bulge of wood, wrapped with fibre at either end. The shaft is very long and curves in its lower portion. It is covered in a dark pigment.
