Stone Adze Blade, Prehistoric

With stand: 37 x 8 x 4 cm - without stand: 31 x 8 x 4 cm

Provenance: Wahgi Valley, New Guinea Highlands.

Notes: All four stone adze blades have a pure shape that is ideal for their function – cutting wood in particular but also shaping wood and other materials. But beyond the functionality they have great aesthetic appeal. Indeed the finest were kept as wealth objects, to be traded with other clans.
