Lance holder for the deck of a kayak, made from whale bone. It consists of a centre piece shaped to fit against the inverted 'V' shape of the deck of a kayak, with smaller pieces attached at each end with two iron rivets. The faces of the centre and end pieces are cut aslant where they join so that the end pieces extend inwards and upwards at a shallow angle. A piece of babiche connects the inner part of the end pieces to the centre piece by passing through holes drilled in each piece, and then wrapping around itself. A hole drilled through the joints at each end would have been used for mounting the holder to the kayak. One face of the centre piece has incised lines running from each mounting hole almost to the midpoint.
