Horn Spoon Item Number: 25.0/298 from the The Burke: University of Washington

Exhibit Label

Two pieces of mountain goat horn have been joined with a single copper rivet to form this spoon. The figures carved on the handle appear to be a killer whale with a man's face on the dorsal fin, a raven, and a bear. The carving is very precise and resembles Haida work from the mid-nineteenth century. (Holm, Crooked Beak of Heaven, 1972)
