This beautiful Carved Wood Feast Bowl that originates from Bipi Island, one of the forty islands that make up the Admiralty Island group, found approximately 190 miles off the coast of Papua New Guinea. One of the principal groups is the Manus. They produced a series of art forms that often show a marked uniformity in style and imagery across the region. This is largely because artists from specific groups or islands appear to have specialized in producing particular types of objects that were exchanged throughout the archipelago. Admiralty Islander artists produced a rich variety of decorative arts, which were used in both religious and secular contexts. As is the style of traditional Admiralty Island carving, the bowl has a four foot base. The feast bowl, no doubt a prized possession for its owner's, would have been used during important ceremonial occasions involving food. This bowl would be a lovely addition to your home or collection.
The bowl show some age, has a chip at the top, but is good condition.
