Ritual communion bowl (apira ni mwane). Bird body bowl, curved garfish underneath. This bowl used in the Waumwaumwa cult at Natagera. Carver: Piringimataua (deceased). Tutelary unknown. Compare with Illustration 98 in Bernatzik, Owa Raha (1936) which may be the same bowl - or this one is a replacement of that bowl.
