This curved ave has also been made of semi-precious stone and has soft lines on its surface as a result of polishing. Although it is unknown which type of polishing tools were used, there is evidence of a lengthwise and slanted polishing motion.

Curved axes, made out of ordinary stone, were used on a daily basis for digging and cutting trees but this one was likely to have been used for ceremonies, burial or barter.
