A fine classic bone dagger from the Abelam people of the Wosera region. Surmounted with the iconic birdlike form that can be seen throughout Abelam art, the dagger also has fine clan etchings with a delicate spirit or ancestral face carved into the center. These etchings are made in order to add power and protection to the dagger and its owner. A very well used mid to late 20th century piece.
Dimensions: 12.5" x 3.5" x 1"
