An old GIANT 520mm stunning piece of Oceanic Art, the Korwar Figure from Cenderawasih Indonesia. Beautiful aging and natural splits are visible on the wooden statue, sold as shown. Hardwood. A must have. Circa 1950.
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.
