Dance baton that depicts a heron sitting in a tree (LSDA). The baton is made from a long, rounded piece of wood with a top carved to look like a heron's head. The length of wood is painted red with alternating red and black rings just below the top. The carved heron head has abalone shell inlay for the eyes and is painted using red and black pigments. Hair is inserted along the top of the head. A small line design is painted in black on the heron's long beak.
