Borneoartifact Item Number: HP 0527
A SUPERSIZE XXXXL, old and spectacular piece of Oceanic Art, this Korwar Figure from Cenderawasih Indonesia stands 730mm tall. Beautiful aging, natural erosion and splits are visible on the wooden statue. A small part of one arm is missing(please view my detailed photos below description) but otherwise this beauty is a must have statue, simply gorgeous! Circa 1960.

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.
