KORWAR CROWN STATUE 610mm WOOD Oceanic Art Sculpture Garden Pool Pub Restaurant


Borneoartifact Item Number: HP 0449
A stunning piece of Oceanic Art, the Korwar Figure from Cenderawasih Indonesia stands 610mm tall. Beautiful aging and natural splits are visible on the wooden statue, notably at the back of its hollow head but otherwise a lovely piece. 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.
