Ceremonial Lime Stick - Purchased from a tribe on the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea - Price: $150.00 USD

40 inches tall, about 4 inches in diameter - Materials: Wood, Fiber, Paint and Shells. Used for crushed lime, which is used in chewing Betel Nut. In practice a much smaller and simpler container is used. We collected this item on a trip up the Sepik River in 1997.
