This item is a small gourd bowl with smooth inner and outer surfaces. The rim of the outer edge is decorated with black pre-Columbian artwork. There is a chip on the edge of the bowl. This can be seen in the photo below. The bone knife or scrapper is 8 cm long and 2 cm wide at the tip. The bone scrapper is pierced on one end and it has a curvature that matches that of the inside of the bowl. It is not known if the scrapper and bowl are matched or if this is a coincidence.
