Nice painted storyboard from Papua New Guinea, not hardwood but softer wood and painted with lime of some sort. Carved relief of typical new guinea motifs crocodiles, canoes etc. They are generally placed in Common Houses where villagers would gather. These storyboards were originally painted in river clays to record ancestor stories and legend, and folklores. So they vary in sizes, some extremely large. About 40/50 years old, possibly slightly earlier, acquired this from Amsterdam many years ago. I collected New Guinea tribal pieces at one point including grass skirts etc. Clean and no damage. Nice on a stand. Age related wear but otherwise good condition. 39cm (width) x 17cm (height).
