Image: Pandanus balls - E017294
Sixteen small, cube-shaped play balls made from plaited pandanus strips. It was said that they were used in a throwing team game in which the balls must not touch the ground. They are called kai by the Meriam people. Collected from Mer (Murray) Island, Torres Strait by C Hedley and AR McCulloch in 1907.
