OC585: Lumi War Shield

OC585: Lumi War Shield

A very large and outstanding complete Lumi shield. The very well carved central image is both carved in relief and into the surface of the shield. The dark crusty patina is thick and typical of this area. The original bark and rattan handle is intact. A particularly good and old example of a classic New Guinea shield.    

Previously in the collection of Kirby Lewis, Lewis Wara Gallery, WA.

40.5" tall by 29" wide. Early 20th century, West Sepik, Papua New Guinea.    ....$4250.00
