This large and very nicely carved story board measures 20 1/2" x 9 1/2". I would think that this is a "made for the tourist market" item but it is a but it is unusual and is very well done.... a lovely example of native New Guinea carving. Age is probably quite recent..last twenty or thirty years I'd think.
