Catalogue Description: Small thin slate palette of crescent shape, with stylized protusions on both ends and in center, perhaps representing a boat with a bird's head at the prow, its tail at the stern, and the cabin, represented by a three-pronged square, in center. Perforated by two string-holes, in the protrusions of center and tail. The round edge is rather sharp. Condition: Intact but for a tiny notch in middle of curved edge. Traces of use.
