Mid-20th century - Signs of weathering and insect damage

This large, old and important Asmat head-hunting sculpture comes from the collection of Haji Baso in Kerobokan, Bali.
It is 215 cm tall and portrays an important ancestor who has bagged 3 heads.
As the figure has been carved from a light wood, it has noticeable signs of insect damage, but these are no longer active.

    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!!

  • Important Cracks in the Wood that Need Support otherwise there is a Risk of separation of the Panel. Price therefore definitely far to high. Disappointed about my purchase.

    Levering was zeer snel .
    Alleen de ouderdom van het masker, vermeld als midden 20ste eeuw lijkt mij niet correct. eerder 3de kwart 20ste eeuw Want bij midden 20ste eeuw denk aan de jaren 50-60
