Item No: figure_boiken_1103
   
Description: ANCESTRAL BOIKEN FIGURE
   
  Narrowing at the base upon which it is held, this Boiken Ancestral figure has an archaic appeal. 
  The timber which makes up the form of the piece is extremely dense yet its features are fine.
  An encrusted patina appears throughout and remnants of red and white pigments remain.
  A small wooden spike has been inserted throughout the septum and more recent twine has
  been attached. The smaller face surmounting the figure can be seen to be a spirit being
  relevant to the specific clan to which the figure belongs.
   
Dimensions: 16" x 4.5"
   
Location: Boiken, Papua New Guinea, Sepik River Region
