Unknown Maker
Description
Bowl carved from a whole coconut shell. Shell has been cut vertically through the middle towards the centre, so that the upper two quarters are removed, leaving only a small central strip of shell in the upper half. This runs through the middle and acts as a handle. A jaggered edge has been carved around the top of the bowl.

Oval, hollow cup with points at both short ends, carved from a piece of coconut shell. Three small notches carved at one of the points.
