Description

korwar figurine

Korwar images served as supernatural intermediaries. Thus, that allow the living to communicate with the dead.  When a family member died, his or her relatives summoned a carver that is typically a religious specialist. He created a Korwar and enticed the spirit of the deceased to enter it.

Therefore, Korwar imagery was highly conventionalized. Thus, depicting the ancestor in a seated or standing position. The robust head and arrow-shaped nose are the hallmarks of Cenderawasih carving.
