Polished wood; remains of red ochre in carving, Paddle-like with long, narrow, lanceolate blade, one edge of which is notched below a roughly rectangular projection at about its middle. Pronounced median ridge on both faces with curved ridges extending onto the projection, which thus is given something of a beak appearance. Pointed end partly wrapped with plaited hair rope.
