Mother and Child Massim Lime Spatula
Mother and child Massim Lime Spatula
Object Type: Spatula
Locality: Northern Massim Papua New Guinea
Material: King Ebony
Height: 34.5 cm
Description: Massim spatulas of this style are extremely rare. According to Harry Beran, only 12 are known to exist worldwide. It has that black glossy patina only the best quality handled ebony gets. In real life, it is blacker and shinier than the photos. Little is known about this style of spatula but I would guess it is made in memory of a lost wife and child.
