A Skull Rack (Abiga)

A Skull Rack (Abiga)


This Skull Rack/Skull Hook makes for some great wall art and it’s sure to put a smile on your face!

Large "agiba" or "skull hooks" were used to display trophy skulls within the men's ceremonial houses of the Kerewa people of the Papuan Gulf region, on the south coast of New Guinea.

Together with it’s skulls, the agiba was both a shrine and a source of supernatural power.

This one however would have been made much later on, most probably for souvenir purposes, at a guess I’d say around the 60’s/70’s…….
