Centre ridge running from butt end, front and back. There seems to be an imitation cutting edge (along style of adze). Butt end carved in basic but crude human head, flat on back of head. Slight signs of burn marks on rear ridge.
Very unusual form and may not be a pounder as stated. No obvious bruising (as you might expect with a pounder) with a low physical mass adds weight to this proposal but further research might shed new light.
Locality: Papanui Inlet
MeasurementsMaximum dimensions (H x W x D): 207 x 56 x 27mm
