An old black palm food beater, good wear and patina. (WSD)

This superb old beater shows the extensive use, wear, and a patina that could only have been developed over decades. It is made from the timber of the black palm, when dried one of the toughest and hardest timbers in PNG, and this makes the wear on the beating side even more remarkable. The back of this eater has been lying on the ground and there are the beginnings of an attack by insects, though they have not got very far on this very hard material. Length 37 cm / 14 inches.
