670mm ANCESTRAL Cenderawasih KORWAR FIGURE Oceanic Art Statue Tribal Sculpture

$1,350.00 $900.00

Yet another amazing aged Korwar Figure from Cenderawasih Indonesia with a rare motif of the Manduko / Sea Eagle as its crown(in Korwar belief it is forbidden to harm or kill the sacred bird of the son-god). Natural splits due to old age are visible on the wooden statue but otherwise still in good condition, no insect & no decay, it is well kept. Circa 1950-60.

Korwar images served as supernatural intermediaries, allowing the living to communicate with the dead. When a family member died, his or her relatives summoned a carver, typically a religious specialist, who created a Korwar and enticed the spirit of the deceased to enter it. Korwar imagery was highly conventionalized, depicting the ancestor in a seated or standing position with the robust head and arrow-shaped nose that are the hallmarks of Cenderawasih carving.
