Vintage Hour Glass Drum North Coast. Near Sissano Lagoon. New Guinea.

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Near the border of PNG and New Guinea is Sissano Lagoon . . . flooded by a 1998 earthquake and tsunami.  This Kundu hand drum – with all its detail and tanned bird skin –  is representative of other Kundus throughout New Guinea.

I believe this is made from ggage wood although such wood is predominately in the Morobe Province.

This drum has a lot of history and is in perfect condition.  The wrapped band around the drum head is recent.

For the Serious Collector.
