F-14 Bioma Figure


F-14 Bioma Figure

Papuan Gulf, PNG.

The form is unusual, a fish-like form, with a fish tail rather than legs. It shows good age, and would hail from 1930s – 1940s. Ex-old Australian collection. It came to light in a small country town market in Victoria. A similar bioma-like figure in the Bruce Lawes collection, with fishtail like ending is described thus: “this figure plays an important role in the pig skull ceremony, where pig skulls are honoured as important trophies, second only to human skulls.”
