    A very fine patina of use for this "stick" used to reach the lime at the bottom of a calabash or bamboo container. Moistened with saliva, the lime-coated stick is then brought to the mouth. Lime, areca nut (or betel) and mustard pods form a chewing mixture that serves as an appetite suppressant (blood-red saliva). Tribal drawings engraved in slight relief and decorated with salvaged rings (leather?). Evocation of a cockatoo head at the top. Bone. Sold with base. Free shipping.
