Censer, Maya
Chiapas - Mexico
500 AD - 900 AD
Censer composed of a central cylindrical tube decorated with anthropo- and zoomorphic figures, and framed by two lateral wings adorned according to the pelletizing technique.

The open mouth shows two lower canines and the tip of the tongue. The beard is partly destroyed. The eyes are large and emphasized by a thin fringe...
 
Sioux Beaded
Doctor's Bag
Late 19th century
Provenance: Acquired from a private collection.
Doctors were important to the Native reservations around the turn of the century. This bag was most likely done as a special order. It is fully beaded and is in excellent condition. This was more than likely used with the Sioux people. It is a very rare and unusual item.
 
Maori Canoe Bailer, North Island, New Zealand
Early 19th Century
Tiheru, canoe bailer, oval in form with a large Tiki head covered in spiral and triangular tattoos dominating the top, from which the handle sprouts, Tiki heads at both ends. The interior is smooth and worn, with a ridge separating it into two subtle sections which helps control water movement during bailing. The patina of the main carved face is superb - dark and brilliant. This handle has been restored; on Christie's catalogue "la poignee remplacee".
