Suspension Hook

Lower Sepik River, PNG
19th Century

This is a perfect example of tribal art’s powerful influence on modern art. The carver of this hook was far ahead of his time. The form flows wonderfully, terminating into a well carved animal head. With great design and attention to detail this sculpture exudes presence. Being carved with non-metal tools the texture and patina is fine and aged from decades of use.

This hook figure stand 27 inches tall.
