5. Prestige Staff
Appearing to depict a hunting dog with an upright pair of ears, the zoomorphic form of this Hehe staff really captures the presence of the animal. When carrying the staff, the owner would have rested the carved animal head on his shoulders.
A dark, glossy patina has developed on the the staff, where it has been handled and touched throughout time.
