Yes, there are a million Asmat drums out there—being churned out not only in the Asmat area but in Jayapura and I think even Bali. Yet, this is as pure and ancient pre-contact one as one could hope to find with a perfect early provenance. This was collected between 1955 and 1958 by Mr. Carel Groenevelt, the early collector for the Rotterdam museum. The drum comes from a Dutch collection and is seen in the photograph of the family home in Hollandia in 1959 besides the table lamp. The carved design is strong with robust openwork and a superb patina from generations of use. Please take note of the image of the inside of the drum as that is often the best indicator of age. The piece dates to the late 19th century, is 21 ¼” (54.0 cm) in length and the price is available upon request. Questions?
