Description

Fish hook made of a white bone, very rough and porous. The hook is in the shape of a "L" with a small hole in the tip of the stem. The hook is very sharp, relatively flat. One side is very smooth and white, the other side is very discolored, very jagged and rough with small grooves in it where it might have been lashed against something.
