Lot 0055 Details

Description
This fine anthropomorphic House panel is from Papua New Guinea, and was designed to decorate homes for cult ceremonies. The markings verso attest to its age, as it was carved with stone tools rather than metal chisels. The visage represents a spirit, carved exquisitely by a master craftsman, reflecting specific points in the history and mythology of individual clans. Since I am not a specialist in this area you will need to do further research. A rare collectable object. Anthropomorphic House panel Papua New Guinea Prov: Gaetan Schoonbroodt H: 80 cm
Condition
Vintage condition, a hole in the wood, and small parts missing on the rim
