Canoes in the Humboldt Bay region (North Papua - New Guinea) were carved with symbols strongly related to spirits of the sea. Fish and Bird motifs also on the other part of the border along Papua New Guinean Coast.
We field collected this piece early ninety nineties on a small Island along North Coast near Ormu village
It had been kept as a memory of the owner who died decades before I obtained it. It expresses dramatically the classical idea how a canoe should be decorated. With pride it was sold to us.
Highly estimated by locals.
