Description: SMALL LOWER SEPIK AMULETIC FIGURE
   
  Used by men as a magical hunting charm this amuletic figure is a strong piece despite its small
  scale. Amuletic figures were owned by New Guinea men in order that they could gain supernatural
  assistance in hunting, fishing, and in sexual liaison. With classic features, this figure has
  been used over a long period of time with vibrant trade paint red and yellow applied
  at a much later date than when it was initially carved. Dates to the 1930's.
