Mountain-Ok Shield, Atkom Faiwol or Angkeiakmin speakers, possibly Bolovip village, Star Mountains, West Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea Philip Goldman Collection, London Michael Martin Collection, Melbourne This shield probably comes from the Faiwol area south of Telefomin. Here the designs are a bit looser and less rigid aesthetically than their northern neighbors in the Telefomin Valley. While there is still a strong geometric composition to this shield, the edges are a bit rounded, more organic and the four spirals give it a figurative element. There are numerous arrow tips embedded into the front of the shield. Early 20th century 62-1/2” (158.8 cm) in height Price available upon request. Questions?
