Papua New Guinea Bowl Trobriand Islands
This is a lovely Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea Bowl Trobriand Islands hand carved serving Bowl. In these islands which are rarely visited, outside influence is at a minimum. The extremely skilled carvers inspire themselves from what is around them as they have access to nothing else: the natives, birds, fish, pigs, marine turtles, snakes and whatever they see in their dreams such as dragons or mystical figures. Some of these items have very important meanings as they are used as part of the Kula ring trade system that has existed between the islands for centuries. Shows age and Natural Wear.
