    This type of dish is generally for ceremonial use which is not the same depending on the region.
    Its use is for sago palm flour or for sago palm worms during ceremonies in order to deposit the brains of enemies returning from headhunting in order to mix the paint colors used for body paintings and ritual objects.
    The human representation designates an ancestor who died during a head hunt.

    This dish is divided into two parts and connected by a wire. A whole part is carved from top to bottom.

    Very good general condition.
