This is a wonderful War Charm from the,Manus Provence, Admiralty Islands. War charms were worn at the back attached to a cord strung about the neck, and charms endowed the wearer with strength and courage during conflicts. The object was often a symbolic likeness of the first warrior killed or severely wounded by its owner. Throughout the Admiralty Islands, part of a warrior's preparation for battle included donning a war charm to increase his courage and protect him in battle. The charm was tied with a short cord to the nape of the neck so the carved head looked out behind the warrior and the feathers curved away from his back. War charms consists of a carved wooden head with a headdress set above a plume of twenty-four black feathers representing a body. The head has a long face with a long narrow nose, elongated horizontal lens-shaped eyes, and a raised oval mouth, and is partly painted in black and white. Today, similar War Charm ornaments are used in dance performances at cultural festivals. This is NOT AN OLD ORIGINAL WORN War Charm, but one that was made 30 years ago by a well known carver from the Admiralty Islands. The War Charm is simply beautiful and has all the characteristics of the old and rare charms. This is a unique carved War Charm and would be a great addition to your collection or home.
