This is a Beautiful Papua New Guinea Old Wood Savi Statue from the Kaminabit Village of Papua New Guinea. This Papua New Guinea standing male ancestral figure is hand carved from a single piece of wood with a beautifully aged old pigmented surface with finely decorated facial features. The best carvers are recognized as being more spiritually powerful. Carvings are seen as temporary and are often discarded after use, as the carvers know they can always create more. Some carvings are considered too powerful to keep after the ceremony is over and are carried away a safe distance from the village and left in the jungle.
