I have had this for a while. It's about 18 inches long and it is also a yipwon spirit figure. I made the mistake of washing what I thought was grime off of it. It was black when I got.

Picked this mask up today at a flea market. From what I can gather on the net it is a Savi style mask from the middle Sepik River region, possibly village of Tambunam (sp?). It's about 15" long. Age? I would appreciate any other info anyone can offer. Thanks.

Wow! Great find UkuTiki. Unfortunately I do not have any insights to share on this piece other than...simply amazing.

Buzzy,

Here is my source for identifying the mask:

Great mask but the important thing is that mine is bigger than yours

I'm going to stop referring to them as bedrooms, and start calling them wings.
that last post was most of two walls, and part of another. the fourth wall of that room has my tv, the framed thor tiki carver print, and surfboards taking it up.it's not photographed in this post

here's the other part of the wall of that room with Tahitian and palau stuff.






hang10-my good pal liz said you and me are the only ones who care about tc anymore. I see it more like the Magnificent 7, with a few more of us here,than the odd couple.


Buzzy out!

Hey Buzzy, What an amazing collection! That story board (top) on the Tahiti /Palua wall has a pretty bright blue river depicted from left to right. I took a couple of pix of some very brightly painted sbs at the Polenesio in Havana. I have several painted sbs by the same carver as the artist who carved that huge board you had at Oasis a few years ago. Mine had orange, green, and other hues-none as bright as the blues in the aforementioned river. The boards at the Polenesio were painted in colors as vivid as the blues on your board. At the time I first observed the boards in Havana I was sure that they had been (gasp) repainted. Now I am not so sure. Just an observation.
I damaged my camera during my visit to Cuba so the pic is lousy.Im posting the pic to show the vividness of the paint. I know that most storyboards originated in prisons and the artists used whatever they could get but these are brighter than any I have seen.
Cheers
