A long narrow carved wooden boat with seven holes along the top for holding seven removable carved wooden posts, each with a carved human figure on top. The boat is decorated with curvilinear lime-filled incisions, and the figures are also decorated with lime-filled incisions. Each figure is carved in a seated position with knees drawn up to the body and elbows resting on the knees to provide support for the head from the arms, and is carved from the same piece of wood as the post on which it is seated. The posts taper from the base to the seated figure on top.
