I guessed at a glance about 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 1". Th 1" is the height laying down. You have to carve the flat sides on these so your thicker material is on the side so you can get the right depth to pierce the arms. On a piece of femur bone, anyway. I love these, though. The Marquesans had a million variants...they say no two alike.

Thanks, guys. If you can get the Metropolitan Museum book "Adorning The World, Art Of The Marquesas Islands" there are some nice examples of these to see. One of the better books on Marquesas art.

Here's a little sumpin sumpin I recently added to my Paupuan artifact collection...a Mindibit Crocodile Slit Drum, Central Sepik River area. Always wanted a big one of these, as most examples available now are quite a bit smaller and sold for the tourist trade. This one is the real deal, appx. 60 years old. 11 x 55 inches! As you can see, it's neighbors in the collection are happy!

Aloha!

Great looking work! I've read over all 69 pages of this thread, and I'm not sure what I like better, the work or Basement Kahuna's poses. I hope that I am able to be this good in time. Just keep at it... just keep at it...

Cheers!

They say the drumming in Papua New Guinea is a language. It isn't loud and boisterous, but almost like typing. There is a syntax to it and it communicates a lot of meaning.
