Hand carved ceremonial chonta wood staff like those used by the shamans of the Peruvian North Coast in connection with their healing ceremonies. Typically arranged in an upright row at the head of the ceremonial altar ground, along with swords or long knives, it is believed the staff holds the energy of the shaman's many helpful, healing saints and spirits, represented by the image carved into the staff. Also used as a part of the all-night San Pedro ceremony. Since the staffs are hand-carved, slight variations occur.
