This is a beautifully carved wood rice spoon, originating from the Ifugao tribe of Northern Luzon in the Philippines. This spoon is a fine old example of Ifugao tribal art and over the years it has developed a smooth, shiny and rich patina from daily use. The Ifugao people are famous for their wood carvings and one of the most sought after and collected forms of their art are the old rice spoons, with figurative handles, like this one. These spoons are owned by an individual and are used for daily meals. They are treasured by their owners and are passed down from generation to generation. Each member of the family has their own spoon, some uniquely styled and crafted with special handles. When not in use, duck fat or lard is carefully rubbed over the outer surface. This would be a wonderful addition to your collection.
