It is hard to improve upon the graphic design found on good old Lake Sentani wooden dishes. The spirals, ovals and other motifs are artfully composed on the underside of the dish and carved in relief to create a bold, aesthetically pleasing utilitarian object. This example is a fine early one collected in the 1940s by an American soldier. The lug for suspension and the interior of the plate show good signs of traditional use and age. The piece is 26 ¾” (68.0 cm) in length, it dates to the early 20th century and the price is $1800. Questions?
