Subject:Korwar (?) Figure from Papau New Guinea #1
Posted By: Dan D Fri, Apr 23, 2021 IP:

Hi all,

I have a few wood figures and originally I thought they were African but after doing some research I am finding that they look a lot more like figures from the South Asia/Pacific region. I was hoping there was someone on here with knowledge in this field who could identify them. I have 4 figures all somewhat different so I will make 4 posts on each since they may be from different cultures. I would like to know the following -
A) Where are they from?
B) What age do you think they are?
C) Are they genuine cultural artefacts or are they tourist pieces.
D) Any other information you can tell me for these figures.

I hope someone here has some knowledge of this field as I know it's a lot more China/Japanese based posts here. Thank you so much for your time!
