This is a fabulous Old Ornately Carved and Painted Wood Canoe Splash Board Fragment carved by the Tribal People in the Calvados Chain, East Sepik, Papua New Guinea. The fragment is carved out of dense wood and shows the traditional abstract and geometric designs accentuated with worn pink, black and white trade paint. Many people live along the coast thus the art they create is largely connected with boating. Canoe splash board carvings of this kind were traditionally mounted transverse to the hull. They represented one of the most important elements of the canoe for they were believed to provide special protection. This is a beautiful canoe splash board fragment that shows wear and use by the weathered paint and extensive use. This would be a lovely addition to your home or collection.
