PREHISTORIC STONE HEAD, ENGA

D86

Enga Province, PNG Highlands

This stone head is from the Liagam Valley region of the Enga Province, PNG.The head is carved from a dense igneous stone, simple and abstract in form. It is almost certainly the central part of a pestle. The pounding lower part is missing, and also what was probably a protrusion on the head.  It was collected by an Australian engineer, Ron Ingles, working in Enga in 1962-1963
