Very beautiful canoe bow in the shape of a crocodile's head collected on the banks of the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea. The canoe remains today the most used means of transport in the valley of the Sepik River. Most of these canoes used in the lower and middle Sepik regions have a sculpted prow representing the head of a crocodile, a feared and revered animal. Wood with traces of use (presence of a nail). Possibility of plinth on request. Photos by David & Amélie Godreuil. Free Shipping.
