This Coastal Sepik area that includes the Murik Lakes is the place of origin for this ancestor figure that has a dark, aged patina. The high surfaces toes, ears and top-knot etc where timber has been exposed has developed aged colour. The timber is not very dense, which is probably more typical of this type of carvings than of dense timber, the exception.
