OC534: Large Papuan Gope Figure

OC534: Large Papuan Gope Figure

An unusual and large Papuan Gulf figurative Gope board. I believe this is the type of Gope known to be carved out of old canoes as the wood has a bit of the curvature and color differentiation on the back side. The carving is well done, but does not have some of the symmetry that is often seen on Gope boards. The colors are original natural pigments.     

67" tall by 9.5" wide. Early 20th century, Papuan Gulf, New Guinea.    ....$6200.00
