This figure is probably a 'lagi" because it is too big for a food hook. "Lagi" were personifications of the ginger planted by each clan's ancestor, and were generally carved as brother and sister. The figures were generally half life size. This figure is a female: she has painted bands on her arms and legs and a painted design on her face.
