Papua New Guinea Rat Tooth Ceremonial Dagger

$262.50 $350.00

This a beautifully incised Old Bone Dagger that was carved using a Rat's Tooth from the Abelam People of the Sepik Region of Papua New Guinea. The predominant element in Papua New Guinea art and design is the curved line and that type of incised drawing was done using a rat's tooth. A bone dagger is made out of the femur bone of the Cassowary Bird which is ingenious to Papua New Guinea. The front side of the dagger has a beautiful abstract motif carved in relief. Bone is recognized as a metaphor for strength, and with a narrow range of material to be used, bone has become very valuable. Bone with its strength has derived powers from the supernatural world and often in ritual and magic. This would be a lovely addition to your collection or home.
