Upper Sepik River Swagup Village Canoe Prow. 10042

Upper Sepik River Swagup Village Canoe Prow. The crocodile prows made in Swagup village on the upper Sepik are completely different than anywhere downstream. Although this is not as readily identifiable as a crocodile, it is their traditional interpretation of one. This prow shows age and use prior to being removed from the old canoe. Painted with clay-based colors, it is custom mounted vertically. It is 18.5 inches tall.
