Huon Gulf Fish Hooks-New Guinea Art-Oceanic Art
Here is a nice set of Huon Gulf fish hooks. They consist of tridacna clamshell shafts with turtle shell barbs lashed at two points with bush fiber. These are nice old examples from the estate of Lynda Cunningham. These all date to the late 19th century, range in size from 2 ¾” (7 cm) to 4 5/8” (11.7 cm) in length and sell as a set for $3000.
