Wand

Description
A black wand carved with three different designs in individual bands: cylindrical grooves, straight grooves in alternating directions and criss-cross grooves. Each of the carved bands is separated by four smooth rings that wrap around the circumference of the wand. Each of the small bands has six circles of inlaid ivory. At each end of the wand is an ivory tip. The top end has a thin band of ivory, a thin band of wood, and a bulbous piece of ivory with inlaid flower designs. The bottom end has a thin band of wood and an ivory tip. This piece is screwed on to the body of the wand.
