Papua New Guinea Bamboo Wood Head Flute Stopper

$120.00 $160.00

This a great Carved Wood and Etched Bamboo Flute with Stopper from the Middle Sepik River Village of the Kamanabit in Papua New Guinea. The sound they make is considered to be the voice of clan spirits and they can only be played by initiated men. Women, children, and uninitiated men are not allowed to see the flutes being played. The images atop the flutes are ancestor figures and clan totems. The flute is considered a sacred instrument. Flutes in Papua New Guinea are usually much larger than western flutes, made out of lengths of hollow bamboo. They are decorated and often have a carved wooden finial at one end. This is a wonderful decorative Flute with Stopper. It would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
