Description: OLD ABELAM BONE DAGGER
  A fine classic bone dagger from the Abelam people of the Wosera region. Surmounted by the iconic
  birdlike form that can be seen throughout Abelam art, the dagger also has fine clan etchings
  throughout with a delicate spirit or ancestral face carved into the center.  These etchings are made
  in order to add power and protection to the dagger and its owner.  A very well used pre 1930's piece.
