Antique Highlands Drum, Papua New Guinea

Antique Highlands Drum, Papua New Guinea. I know what you are going to say, “It has a big crack” True but importantly, it is stable and has been in a US collection for many years. The crack is ancient as evidenced by the copious native repairs. The whole thing seems to have been coated with pitch in addition to the repair. The owner obviously was very fond of his drum, lavishing great care and repeated repairs on it. The tympanum is likely cuscus hide. Unusual for Highlands drums it has some incised decoration along the bottom. It is 28 inches tall.

Priced at $210 plus $45 for shipping.* Total cost $255
