SEPIK RIVER
Dugout Prow 2
21" high x 11.5" wide x 6.5" deep
$1500

This dugout prow has been vetted as authentic.

This salvaged fragment 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 canoe was apparently lost in a fire.

There are visible cracks on the two faces and traces of fire damage on the bottom of the prow.
