Pin

1963.85.23
Four curved pins, probably made from whale tooth and pig's tusk, joined by a cord through holes drilled at the less-pointed ends. Two pins (whale tooth) are larger and thicker, two shorter and thinner (pig's tooth). One larger, less curved, pin has a sliver of paua shell inlay near its hole. The other large pin is straighter and darker overall, with darker sinuses.
