Korwar images served as supernatural intermediaries, allowing the living to communicate with the dead, for when a family member dies, 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. Robust head and arrow-shaped nose are the hallmarks of Cenderawasih Korwar carving.
