Papuan sculpture called "Yipwon" collected in the village of Tarangai in Papua New Guinea. The Yipwon is one of the most stylized and symbolic objects of the Sepik River region. It represents a two-dimensional figure with ribs, its heart located in the central part and the head. Large specimens like this one are placed in the Haus Tambaran (house of men) and are closely related to the warrior world. Its other name, wanleg (from the English "one leg") in pidgin English refers to all figures of this style found in the Blackwater River area. Wood and remains of blue paint. Traces of use.
