Spirits Incarnate Gulf of Papua (N° 19564) Deposit sale

Spirits incarnate. Gulf of Papua Votive Boards presents a selection of wood carvings designated as "votive boards", made in the Gulf of Papua, Papua New Guinea, and coming from important collections. Known by different names in the many ethnic regions of the Gulf, they are called gope in several languages. They are the embodiment of powerful spirits and are traditionally made of wood salvaged from ancient dugout canoes and most often decorated on one side with painted and carved patterns that reflect the identity of a clan. This is the first book devoted exclusively to this subject and places the works in their local, historical and contemporary context, thanks to texts by Robert L. Welsch and Thomas Schultze-Westrum, as well as Virginia-Lee Webb's work on ancient photographs taken by researchers and explorers.
