Made from a hardwood, this somewhat heavy, monoxylous drum has been precisely carved with S-scroll patterns and fish imagery typical of the Massim region of Papua New Guinea. Three large cowrie shells are attached to the handle and lend a contrasting, sharp, rattling sound to the deep, growling tone of the drum. Measuring 27 5/8"H x 5 5/8"D, in very fine, still playable condition. Mid-20th century. Provenance: Andrew Tilden, New Orleans, LA.
