The volumes on this Malekula Island spearhead are especially impressive. There is a monumental quality not easily captured in the photographs. The relatively large scale allowed the artist to carve deep recesses to compliment the facial ridges to take advantage of the interplay between light and shadow in creating the stylized Janus head. The provenance on this piece is equally impressive. It is ex. Linden Museum, Stuttgart, ex. Harry Franklin Collection and was published in “Arts of Oceania” by the Dallas of Fine Arts in 1970, plate 89. The piece dates to the late 19th century, is 19 1/2'” (49.6 cm) in height and the price is available upon request. Questions?
