More like a colourful art piece this long wooden shaft consisting in two parts, one, the upper shaft, and other, the shaft for holding blade, is a spear inlaid all over with ivory chips. Leaf-shaped blade has a shank into which the shaft is inserted. It is more a ceremonial piece than a weapon of actual warfare.
