Abstract

Long slender object tapers to a dull point. The head end is embellished with a heavy solid cone of metal, the base of which attaches to the shaft. The shaft tapers from its attachment point to the dull point. The point may have been broken. The head end is bent in a smooth curve to a 75 degree angle from the length of the shaft. The shaft is pierced by a bore along the straight shaft beginning 10.7 cm. from the dull end. The shaft swells to either side of the bore.
