West Sepik Paddle
Photo Enlargement

 

        This exquisite paddle comes from the Sissano Lagoon area of the West Sepik Province.  Collected in the Lumi area.          Dating to the 1950's with the classic design and brown patina.  Collected from the grandson of a Sissano woman             who married a Lumi man and brought along this paddle after marriage.  Painted in natural pigments not like             the bright often garish colors that were used for paddles from this region after the 1960's.  Wonderful elegant             design. Comes custom mounted.
