WEST NEW BRITAIN WAR SHIELD- NEW GUINEA- deaccessioned artifact

     










Description

 WEST N BRITAIN WAR SHIELD- NEW GUINEA.- deaccessioned artifact. This shield is deaccessioned from my private collection. The concentric circles represent the eyes of the sea eagle which impart sight to the user. The other designs are unique to the owner. Old black, red, white pigments- repainted with vivid colors. The repainting imparts an almost decorative surface with raised and depressed 'bumps'. The incised motifs are deeply carved. Pigmented wood half round panels, braced with split reed.  Carved hand hold. Very thick and 3-dimensional and heavy. Collected in the 1960s at which time it was approximately 20 years old. There was no commercial factor in New Guinea at that time- authentic war shield. Arawe / Kandrian people. West New Britain (near New Guinea).  Size: 56 1/2 inches long x 13 inches wide. Estimated value- $3500. Shipping and handling- $60.00. International- European shipping $75.00.
