O-14 Canoe Bailer

Trobriand Island, eastern PNG.

Massim canoe bailers are simple, elegant and functional; but this description belies the strange beauty of their form when vertical. They become anthropomorphic, and often fine engraving on the “forehead” adds to their presence. This is an old, well-used canoe bailer, with a most elegant form.
