Artefact of the day 22/8

August 23, 2013

Celeste and stickThe artefact of the day is an enigmatic stick with an angry face on it. It was found by Celeste in area A. We do not know what it is or what it was used for – but it’s unusual and kind of cool. Many of the pieces we find at Nunalleq have faces carved on them; happy faces, sad faces, angry faces… – utility objects as well as objects with no apparent use, such as sticks. The stick dolls we have found so far have all been much smaller than this one – which probably had a totally different function. Any guesses?
