Asmat Tribal Shield, Papua, New Guinea, Fantastic For Sale
Northwest Asmat, believed to be from the Navarpi Village, Wood, red ocher, charcoal. The large motif on this shield represents flying fox/ bat figures. No decoration on the back of the shield. I purchased this outstanding Asmat shield from John and Angela Pate, world travelers, and dealers in the antique art business. I have reduced the price significantly. Originally listed for $750. The shield is one of a kind and outstanding in its detail. I will be happy to provide you with information/text from Asmat art : woodcarvings of southwest New Guinea / edited by Dirk A.M. Smidt , that will assist in the describing the history and significance of this tribal piece. Approximate dimensions are 44inches in length(111.76cm) , 19 inches wide( 48.26cm). I am not an expert. I bought this to decorate my home. I have downsized and its time to let it go. Thank you for your interest. keywords: tribal art, decor, decorating, warrior, war, fighting shield, bats, good luck, protection, interior decorating, headhunters, woodcarving, Pacifica, Indonesia, Indosian art,
