The people of this region make carvings incorporating symbols of the creatures that sustain them. The carvings are used in rituals, feasts and initiation rites. The pieces are carved from a light wood (alstonia scholaris) and are darkened with a mixture of charcoal and parinarium nut paste, and inlaid with mother of pearl. Acquired from the Solomon Islands National Museum in Honiara, Guadalcanal.
