Here is another old friend I was shocked to see in a European collection and eagerly bought back. This I originally acquired from a New York family whose mother had purchased directly from the Manhattan dealer J. J. Klejman in the 1950s. The figure itself dates to the pre-1920 era, is obviously Coastal or Lower Sepik River—more than likely somewhere around the Murik Lakes region. It has pierced ears, pierced nose, nice remains of red pigments, its traditional bark cloth laplap intact and a wonderful sculptural quality with thin arms thrust back above a big rump and shoulder blades showing classic scarification patterns. The figure is 10 ¾” (27.3 cm) in height and the price is available upon request. Questions?
