19th century

Wonderful, old, perfect wenga ring of the Boiken/Yangoru/Kubalia in the Prince Alexander Mountains, East Sepik, Papua New Guinea. In contrast to yua rings, wenga rings are only used in very important transactions: Land titles, post-war compensation and so on. These rings also have their own names and are often passed on over several generations. This is of huge prestige to the owner in possession of such a ring. The ring offered here is mounted on a stand and has the following dimensions: width 20.5 cm, height without base 18 cm, height with base 27 cm, inner diameter 7 cm. The material is flawless, the ring has a fantastic patina from being used a long time over the course of generations. The fine hairline crack is from when it was being made and isn’t an actual flaw.
