Micronesian Storyboard with Trumpet
This older Micronesian carved wooden storyboard, depicting six natives carrying what appears to be bowls atop their heads as well as a native blowing into a triton shell horn. The storyboard is 29 1/2" in length and about 5 1/2" tall. The fine vintage piece has signs of age, like some loss of inlaid white (see interior of the Bai on the right side), as well as two small nail holes from hanging, but looks great, and is a striking piece. This was purchased in a small Kentucky private collection.
