A very rare Museum Quality Authentic Antique Oceanic leaf shaped ceremonial war paddle made of a dark brown hardwood rising from a rounded shaft, and flaring to an elongated tear shaped spatulate blade, each side carved in low relief with a characteristic for this region face of typical elongated form with large sagittate nose, circular eyes, and crescent shaped lips, the finial of the shaft bountifully carved with the head of an Alligator.
The paddle was made by very primitive stone tools, as determined by the irregular marks left on the surface of the wood.
