1998.28.14 (Comb)

Wooden African hair comb with 11 teeth. Above the teeth and below the handle the wood is smooth except for the center. In the center two triangles are etched into the wood, one of which is upside down. Inside these lines a zig zag pattern is drawn. The handle of the comb is a circular piece of wood with a small hole in the center. Three triangles of the same etched zig zag design surround this center hole with their tips touching the center hole. One triangle is at the top and inverted, the other two are on the right and left of the center hole. Color: BR
