440mm ANCESTRAL Cenderawasih KORWAR FIGURE Oceanic Art Statue Sculpture Images


Borneoartifact Item Number: HP 0372
An old Korwar Figure from Cenderawasih Indonesia. Natural splits due to old age are visible on the wooden statue but otherwise still in good condition. Circa 1970.

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.
