This is a Wonderful Old Carved Wood Ancestor Hook Statue from the Lower Sepik Region, Papua New Guinea. Coastal groups formerly created Statues representing a variety of male and female spirits and used by men during ceremonial performance. The Statues were kept as sacred objects within the men's ceremonial house. According to oral tradition, Statues originated when women heard the sounds of underwater spirits. The men, attempting to find the source of the sound, probed the water with poles. Eventually, one man dived in and saw the spirits. This would be a wonderful addition to your collection and or home.
