Bone Daggers, Weapons, Tools > Very Old Massim Area Adze, New Guinea - #8552

Very Old Massim Area Adze - This old adze is made of hardwood with what is likely and old steel barrel band for a blade.  It was once decorated with bilas (shells and ornaments) and has a crack that is the probably reason it was discarded.  This circa 1950 adze was collected on 18 August 1975 in situ. A stunning old piece.

The handle is 19 inches long and the head measures 10 inches long.
