Pump-style bow drill. The drill shaft is nocked at the upper end and has a stone point attached with leather at the lower end. A rectangular board on the upper half is attached to the shaft with a leather strap. A circular weight is attached below the board and acts as a flywheel. Likely painted at one time.
