Abstract Zwei Männer stellen mit Macheten lanzettförmige Pfeilspitzen aus halbierten Bambusstücken her, spitzen sie an und bearbeiten sie fein mit einem geschärften Zahnmesserchen. Die Spitzen werden mit Urucú rot gefärbt und mit mäanderförmigen Mustern versehen.
A piece of bamboo is roughly cut with a machete. The fine carving of the arrowhead is done with a small-toothed knife. After the arrowhead has been shaped correctly, it is painted with two different shades of red dye.
