I grant you that this highly distressed churinga fragment is not everyone’s taste. Yet, I have been fascinated by the extreme nature of the erosion and the randomness of the deep worn craters. And what is amazing is that the wood is super hard and dense—thus it must have taken generations and generations of exposure to create this mosaic of age. And then, that even this fragment has been layered with ritual ochre and emu fat signifies this portion was still used in ritual in its present condition. It is assuredly 19th century or earlier, 31 7/8” (81.1 cm) in height and sells for $3800. Questions?
