Object description :

"Votive Board / Protective Gope / Papuan Charm"
The votive boards or protective gobble were placed in the men's house, places of life and spirituality of the villages. Their use is generally devoted to "protective spirits" for the health or good understanding of the tribe. The particular shape of it tells us about a particular use, hunting crocodiles. Indeed, the external cut of the tree bark draws the stylized contours of the animal and therefore indicates, its very precise characteristic, hunting for crocodiles. 19th / 20th
