Lot Essay

Taillé dans la coquille d'un bénitier géant, ce rare projectile peut être comparé à un objet publié dans Phelps (1976, p.215, fig.968) provenant de la collection Hooper et ayant conservé tout son cordage. Nous pouvons supposer que ce projectile était utilisé tel une fronde, à la différence que le projectile reste attaché à la cordelette.

More from Art Océanien : Objets de Curiosité provenant de la collection Daniel Blau
