Yuat, Lower Sepik River, PNG
Early 20th Century
Ex: Mark Franklin, San Francisco
This ancestor figure is a sublime example of Yuat artistry; it is a pleasure
to view from every angle. Its finely carved torso is surmounted by an
expressive face with wonderfully carved features and a pierced septum.
This figure has a fine brown aged patina. There is a stabilized age crack
in the back, but in otherwise excellent condition.
This figure stands 14 inches tall
