Wood Carved Naga Tribe Day Bed

$6,800

About

The Naga tribesman slept on elevated wooden beds to keep off the moist earth in their huts. Like most Naga artifacts, this bed is carved from a single piece of wood. The Naga people are various individuals or ethnic groups associated with the North-Eastern part of India and northwestern Myanmar. The tribes have similar cultures and traditions, and form the majority of the population in the Indian state of Nagaland and Naga Self-Administered Zone of Myanmar; with significant populations in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam in India; Sagaing Division and Kachin State in Myanmar. The Naga tribes practiced headhunting and preserved the heads of enemies as trophies through the 19th century and as late as 1969. This bed is unusually solid and heavy and taller than typically found. It is original but bees-waxed for a richer surface patina.
