"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION The object is a large spoon (top in photograph) carved from a single piece of wood. Inside the bowl of the spoon in black and red is a painting of a wolf crest that includes a wolf with a large tail. The spoon is in good and stable condition. On the handle, at the top, there are two holes; on the body and legs of the wolf, there are small black pigment losses. See also 05.588.7331.
