Suspension Hook, SENTANI, PAPUA, INDONESIA

The ornaments on this hook are fish related designs and the hook itself has the abstract shape of a fish. It was therefore used to suspend fish related products such as nets.

This hook was collected on Vanimo. This officially belongs to Papua New Guinea. Stylistically it is very much related to art from the Lake Sentani area.

Collected between 1956 and 1963 by J. Hoogerbrugge.
