New Guinea Native Canoe Prow

SkullStore


$875.00 CAD $1,250.00 CAD




This is an authentic native canoe prow from the Trobriand Islands of New Guinea! 

Carved in the Milne Bay Province out of local wood, this beautiful, antique, work of ethnographic art would have adorned the front of a traditionally-crafted and utilized canoe.

Close inspection will reveal an abstract depiction of a bird's head, surrounded by beautiful, flowing, lines common among coastal peoples of the region. 

It measures ~22" long and worldwide shipping is available!
