  • Vintage/Antique Large Papua New Guinea Tribal Spirit Bird

    Vintage/Antique Large Papua New Guinea Tribal Spirit Bird

    This artifact weighs 3.3kg and is just over 76cm in height. It has been carved out of one piece of wood. It has the typical colouration of the region which has somewhat faded but can still be seen. Age  has caused some deterioration in that there are quite large cracks in one side of the body, a smaller crack in the tail, there is a piece missing from the end of the bill and a little damage along the spine feathers. Nevertheless it is still a commanding carving which needs to be preserved and looked after.
