Papuan Gulf Bullroarer-Syd Rosen Collection New Guinea Art
Here is an early Papuan Gulf bullroarer I acquired earlier this month from a warehouse in Phoenix where it has sat for almost 50 years. It has two spirit faces with with bird heads as eyes. It is a very early example judging from the rough-hewn carving style. The piece dates to the early 20th century, stands 17 1/8” (43.3 cm) in height.
