Papua New Guinea Bowl Trobriand Inlaid Mother of Pearl Wood Serving Bowl

$60.00

This is a lovely Papua New Guinea Trobriand Inlaid Mother of Pearl serving Bowl. In these islands which are rarely visited, outside influence is at a minimum. The extremely skilled carvers inspire themselves from what is around them as they have access to nothing else: the natives, birds, fish, pigs, marine turtles, snakes and whatever they see in their dreams such as dragons or mystical figures. Some of these items have very important meanings as they are used as part of the Kula ring trade system that has existed between the islands for centuries.
The Kula ring is a system of exchange involving annual inter-island visits between trading partners who exchange highly valued shell ornaments and other things during year long sea travels.

Missing some Mother of Pearl, otherwise in very good condition.
