Sedment, cosmetic spoon
Wooden cosmetic spoon in form of an ankh; cross pieces formed by tied lotus flowers, the base (handle) formed of a nude girl with lute standing in a boat (the bow and stern are made of ducks heads) among tall lotus flowers and buds. Beneath boat, conventional water and two kinds of fish. Hole for cover to bowl of spoon. The nude girl playing an instrument reveals a strong connection between sexuality and music.
