Southern Solomon Islands
Of "paddle" type. The broad blade has incised on each face a conventionalized human head with tall rounded two-winged headdress. This is repeated towards the pointed butt, the headdress being triangular, and without the erect wings. Above this are two conjoined, strongly prognathous human heads, carved in the round and facing in opposite directions, For the latter, cf. Balfour in Man, 1905, No. 50.
