Why this is a
Masterpiece

The detail of the texture of this scoop net shows that simple implements of daily use are also works of art even if they have been repaired like the present example.

History of the Object
This scoop net was collected by Wilhelm Müller-Wismar in 1912/13 in Tepa on the island of Babar in the southeast Moluccas. It was sent to our museum by the collector in 1913.
