Old Mortar with Incised Designs and Ancestor Face - #6715

Old Mortar with Incised Designs and Ancestor Face. I assume this was an old mortar on which the bowl finally wore out but I am not entirely certain. It is very old and worn, with a thick dark brown patina. There is a crack on the back but the patina is deep in there as well indicating it was used for a long time after it cracked. The piece is very solid. Comes from a lower Sepik Village, collected in the 1960’s. Custom mounted, 8.125 inches tall.

Sells for $80
