I'm a HUGE fan of PNG carvings. Someday I hope to have a great big mask. Here are the two I have. They are both quite small. I believe the second one to be quite old.

Flea market find. It's 9" tall, broken off the top of something, and I don't have the other piece. Is it the top of a staff or spear? I haven't been able to find anything similar.

Wow, you all have some nice pieces...

Eric, you're landing some really nice stuff lately. That wicker mask is very interesting.

Thanks Babs.
Actually, I am just trying to share more. I've seen another wicker mask someplace else. I think a movie or old TV show? Maybe even TC.
Here are a couple other pieces.
20ish inch mask.




A really neat container / bowl. Sadly, damaged with pooooor repair work 7.5" tall by 10.5" wide.

don't know what region of New Guinea it came from but it's three feet tall and it was found in Tacoma, the yam mask we found in Portland.

I stumbled across this nice mask at an antique store today in Santa Barbara.


It's definitely old and has shell eyes.



Don't know too much about the origins, any info would be appreciated.

Just picked up this Papua New Guinea storyboard table. Needs some cleaning, edge repairs and a glass top. Even the legs are carved tiki form.
