UnknownImpressive Papua New Guinea Shield, Late 19th Century
This striking shield was realized in Papua New Guinea towards the end of the 19th century. The rectangular form in unfinished nubuck hued hardwood has been inscribed with white curvilinear and geometric patterns. A small carved wood figurine adorns the top of the shield. The back has also been painted with a recurring diamond pattern in organic tan and black pigments. This is not only a compelling object, with a robust spiritual aura, but a compelling object that would be a perfect addition to virtually any style of interior from classically inspired to ultra contemporary. Excellent vintage condition.
