Old Food Bowl Boiken People in the East Sepik River Province Papua New Guinea
This beautiful old food bowl is from the Boiken People / Culture in The East Sepik River Province of Papua New Guinea. This deep bowl that on the outside is carved in the form of a stylised lizard. Usually Boiken plates are of circular form and shallow so this example is a rare form and has warm patina over all. Field collected in the 1980s and artwork has been displayed in my home for 35 years, its such a beautiful object I never get tired of looking at it. On a fine custom made stand to make it easy to display on a table or shelf.
