Janet's - HOOK OF LIFE BRPM09, 259.00 AUD (http://www.janetssamoa.com/hook-of-life-brpm09/) Pacific Marlin Bill is noted for its golden colour and unique textures, no two pieces being exactly alike. Colour can range from light gold to deep maroon or brown. In combination with other materials from the sea such as (shell and other fish bone) or land (such as bone) it makes for a dazzling contrast.
Kiffian Fish Hook from Gobero. Likely used to hook huge Nile perch in deep waters some 9,000 years ago in a "green Sahara," an inch-long fish hook carved from animal bone is among hundreds of artifacts discovered at the Gobero archaeological site in Niger. Dozens of fishhooks and harpoons found at the site, some stuck into the bottom of the ancient lakebed, tell of a time when Gobero was a lush fishing and hunting ground inhabited by crocodiles, hippos and pythons.
