One of the paramount qualities in assessing a piece of New Guinea art is expression or the sense of the object having a living spirit--as my friend Joel Cooner puts it--that the sculpture "looks back at you." This early Middle Sepik suspension hook collected in the early 1930s on the famous French La Korrigane Expedition does just that. It has a wonderfully composed and expressive face above a stylized body with a cut out elliptical center. The hook dates to the 1900-1920s era, is 29-3/4" (75.4 cm) in height and the price is available upon request. Questions?
