Spearhead

Object information

Physical description

A pigmented spearhead made from a piece of pointed wood with reverse barbs to one side of the shaft. The proximal end of the spear is set in bamboo with adhesive and the distal end is roughly sawn. There is a torn cream adhesive label with scalloped edging that reads, "No / 69". The spear has small holes in the shaft, possibly from insect damage.
