Canoe Prow

Korewori, PNG
19th Century

This magnificent canoe prow is rendered brilliantly in the form of a fish diving into water; the dynamic nature of the sculpture gives the illusion of actual movement. The face is very expressive with a beautiful heart shaped design forming the eyes and nose. The motif around the eyes is specific to Korewori art.

This prow is 19 inches in length.
