Good early example. 31” height including the stick support. Hour glass shaped body of thick hide formed with medial ridge. The back with support pole shaped to form a hand grip and encased in braided hide lace. Hide knuckle pad at the grip face. The top with original ostrich feather tuft. Good original complete example dating to about 1900 at which time the Turkana were predated on by slavers under Tippu Tib, trading in the East African and Arab markets.
