Massim Net Float
Old Massim Net float for sale
Object Type: net Float
Locality: Southern Massim region Papua New guinea
Height: 15 cm
Description: Massim net floats often have a strange smoked patina that at first does not make sense until you realize that the nets and floats were dried over a cooking fire after use. The designs are believed to draw fish into the nets that are made from handwoven pandanus root fiber. This is a small example from a fishing net and rarer than larger examples from a dugong net.
