Antique Papua New Guinea Hand Carved Wood Sepik River Figure Bird Statue Figure. Acquired from a private collection in Cairns Australia about 40 years ago.
Bird is carved of wood. Shell eyes and hand carved of wood. Interestingly there are red fibers packed into the cracks. Hand carved with stone tools. Probably about 100 years old.
Minor age cracking as expected for its age. Please look at the pictures as this is the actual item that you will receive.
Some items are quite rare and as old as 1,000 BC. More boxes will be unpacked and more artifacts will become available soon.
