Mother and Child Massim Lime Spatula

Mother and child Massim Lime Spatula

Object Type: Spatula

Locality: Northern Massim Papua New Guinea

Artist: Unknown

Circa: 1920

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.
