Ancestor Figure Ramu River Area Papua New Guinea
This older & used Ancestor Figure was collected in the lower Ramu River Area Madang Province of Papua New Guinea. In the form of a male Bird Man Ancestor wearing a ceremonial headdress. This cute little figure I bought in a village not far from the mouth of the Ramu River. It was something an old mam brought out to sell. I asked about it and he said it was just a memory of his grandfather. Though standing on a little rounded base it didn’t stand up on its own, it now has a wood base so it can be displayed on shelf or table. The figure has old patina for handling.
