Papua New Guinea Figures > Sepik River Janus Figural Element, Papua New Guinea - #8626

Sepik River Janus Figural Element - I am not sure what this piece is from but it appears to have been part of some larger piece, perhaps it was a paint vessel. It is finely carved with incised designs over the entire piece on both sides. If it was ever painted there is none remaining, I suspect it had been painted black only. Since the break is at the top of the head that is what makes me think it was a paint vessel. Dates to the the 1950´s. 12 inches tall. Mounted.

It sells for $65 plus $10 shipping for a total of $75
