Measuring 23” in length, this heavy carved wood staff handle (TF97.19) displays at its top a seated, long-faced, and rather gaunt-looking male with a tumpline around his brow holding a small burden on his back. Attributed to the Paramonga of Peru, c.1100-1400AD, this may have been the burden-carrier’s walking stick and the image on top, a depiction of how he probably felt at the end of a long walk carrying his burden...
