First half of the 20th century - Condition consistent with age with patina from weathering.

This ancient, fantastic and classic ‘PORA PORA’ cult house post from Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, is from the collection of the Münster art collector Bernhard Lehmkuhl, who died in 2012.
The purchase price at that time was €12,000.00. It is made of extremely heavy and hard Garamut wood, which over the decades has eroded on the inside; the outside is heavily weathered. Despite its heavy weathering, the post is completely sound thanks to the extremely hard wood.
Probably pre-contact!
The piece is 230 cm tall and weighs about 100 kg, it is mounted on a high-quality, mobile base so that it can be easily moved around at home.

For this piece, we recommend collection by the buyer. However, we can, at the buyer’s wish, send it with a shipping company. If that is the case, the buyer shall bear all costs such as packaging and forwarding costs.

    Livré le 27.Emballage soigné mais inadapté à l'objet, poterie à l’intérieur du carton, sans amortisseur de choc autre que le plastique l'entourant. Arrivée totalement brisée.Dommage belle pièce.

    A first class rarity. Ulrich Kortmann always has the most beautiful items of Papua New Guinea and I must admit the fact that almost my entire collection of PNG has items from his collection!!
