Shell (turtle), plant (0lona)
5.8 x 3.5 cm
This makau is made of ea (Eretmochelys imbricata) shell and is dark brown in color, with some orange patches near the point. It follows a typical Hawaiian form with an incurved point and low outer barb. Some olona (Touchardia latifolia) cordage is still attached to the top of the shank, and a museum catalogue number has been printed on one side of the fishhook.
