Wooden 'stick' shabti. Crudely carved in the form of a man with rough representations of head, arms and feet. Facial features are roughly carved with eyes and eyebrows painted on in black. There is an inscription in hieratic on the front and sides of the body in black ink.
Cult hook of the 'aripa' type found in the Karawari (Korewori) region. It probably depicts a powerful warfare and hunting spirit, characteristically standing on one leg. The hook-like 'arms' are in fact the spirit's ribs, and the patterns may represent his internal organs.
A wooden flute stopper carved as a standing figure surmounted by a giant bird, probably a hornbill. The bird appears to be perched on the man's shoulders, the beak seeming to extend into the crown of his head. Ties on the back of the bird may indicate feather or plant attachments
This suspension hook has a Janus-headed top with facial features extended down to form two shanks that join at the hook. A face is carved at the centre of the hook at the front. The back of the hook is plain. There are traces of red-brown pigment.
Suspension hook with animal-like Janus heads making up the shank, surmounted by a main head with serrated edge, and a hole drilled at the top for hanging purposes. The eyes in the head are white annular shell inserts, while cowrie shells are used in the shank.
This object, carved like a mask, has a ridged back (like a cricket bat) and a headdress depicting a hornbill painted yellow and white with red eyes. The face has shell eyes surrounded with yellow paint and elsewhere is decorated with solid and dotted white lines on a stained background.
The upper surface has a design that gives the impression of two carved faces, facing away from each other, with hooded eyes and arrow-shaped noses. There are four Maltese-cross patterns in rectangular panels filling the space between the faces.
