Around 1900 or earlier — Heavily weathered

This historical, ancient, stone-carved ‘GARAMUT’ slit drum comes from the village of Korogo (Iatmuel tribe) in Middle Sepik, Papua New Guinea. It is 180 cm long and 44 cm wide The whole of the drum portrays a dreaded saltwater crocodile;its tail morphed into a human face of an ancestor. Despite heavy weathering, the drum is still very heavy. It is at least 100 years old, but it could be much older.

    J’ai écrit au vendeur le 22 octobre à la réception du colis
    La jambe et la coiffe étaient brisées en raison d’un emballage défectueux pour une pièce de cette taille (169 cm)
    Et j’ai pourtant payé 60 euros de livraison
    Il ne m’a JAMAIS répondu
    Je vous ai écrit le 24 octobre pour bloquer le règlement
    Vous ne m’avez JAMAIS répondu
    Je veux être remboursé
    La pièce est irréparable et n’a plus de valeur
    Vendeur qui ne répond pas = vendeur à fuir

    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.
