Lime Spatula

Massim, Papua New Guinea
19th century

This spatula representing two figures is superbly carved.  The composition of the figures and their different sizes suggests that it could be a mother and child or perhaps a male and female couple.  While the artist here remains yet to be identified it is certain that this spatula was carved by a Master-Carver of distinction.
