SEPIK RIVER
Dugout Prow 1
45" h. x 18.75" w. x 16.5" d.
$1200

This dugout prow has been vetted as authentic.

This salvaged fragment , cut off the front of a large dugout canoe captures the most valued of the boat's carvings. It exhibits a strong contrast between the simple massive form and the intricately carved details. The large broken areas on the bottom front (as shown) do not explain how the boat was lost.
