A holder for a tool knapped from black-flecked brown obsidian by *DanielAPierce
- the lower bone bead has a carved notch that the tool rests in (as well as a small spiral carved in front). Cords pass through the lower bead and two upper beads to hold the tool in place. The cords are then knotted above the beads to hold them in place, and made into two-strand braids (the cords are crossed over each other without rotating them, so they cling to each other) and knotted together at the far ends. The tool can be removed for use by forcing the right-hand bead to the left, then forcing the bottom bead to the left, which allows the left-hand bead to just barely slip over the horn of the tool (reverse to re-assemble). The tool is about two inches high.
No, I don't know what it's for.
