New Guinea Ancestor figure Carving

Hey all,

here’s a new carving, based on a Papua New Guinea ancestor figure. Crocodiles feature heavily in New Guinea art and are considered to be important spirit figures. Some tribes even celebrate a crocodile as the creator of their world.

I made this from a table leg I found outside, it’s Beech I think, about 28cm tall.
