spoon (food processing & storage); ukhezu

Wooden spoon with a shallow pear-shaped bowl. The handle is flat on the upper surface, and rounded underneath. The handle is decorated with four carved lines near the base, which have been coloured dark brown. The rim of the bowl has also been darkened. There is a loop of wire wrapped around the handle near the tip. In the bowl, two circles and a rectangle have been drawn in ink, which appear to form a face.
