Abelam Hair Ornament-New Guinea Art-Oceanic Tribal Art This tall and elegant hair ornament is from the Abelam culture centered around Maprik in Papua New Guinea’s East Sepik Province. I love the delicate architectural quality as it bends and flows through space. The piece is ex. Ulrich Kortmann Collection, ex. Jolika Collection of Marcia and John Friede and ex. Marc Assayag, Montreal. I published this piece in my catalog “Michael Hamson Oceanic Art San Francisco 2016” no. 22. It dates to the early 20th century, is 31” (78.7 cm) in height and sells for $6000. Questions?
