This is beautiful Carved and Incised Bamboo Lime container with a Bone Spatula/Hair Adornment from the Iatmul People, Papua New Guinea. This was someone's prize possession. This old lime container with lime still visible is a stunning old piece with estimated age of the piece between 1940’s to 1950’s. The bone piece was used as both a spatula for the lime container and as a hair adornment as can be seen by the holes at the top of the piece. These holes would have been decorated with feather and flowers and placed on the hair in times of celebration.
