Bequest of David P. Harris ('46), 2020
Purchased by David P. Harris ('46) from Xanadu Gallery in San Francisco, CA on March 5, 1983.
One side of the piece is heavily weathered, all detail having been destroyed.
This short baton or sceptre, deep tan in color, shows twin figures seated back to back, their arms extended behind them so as to clasp each other around the belly. They wear rings around their necks and ankles; their hair is arranged in concentric bands. The very short handle of the piece consists of a carved ring, ball, and arrow shaped point.
