I field collected this paddle in situ early 1990's in a village along Mappi River.
The owner told me that it once belonged to his great grandfather. And indeed when having a closer look one can see an old and thick patina . These wooden weapons were always kept near the central fire place in the men's houses to avoid insect damage
Unfortunately it misses some chips it still has it's powerful and impressive look.
It is a long object to be sent so for that reason shipping costs are higher then normal
will be packed safely between wooden strips
