Canoe Paddle from Borneo
Not antique, these paddles are reproductions of the everyday tools of a culture that is dependent on rivers for transport of goods and information, yet they are each artfully crafted and well-finished. Details such as carving, shape, and proportion belie their utilitarian purpose. This one is elegantly simple with lots of texture on the paddle end. Grouped on a wall, these paddles would make a striking decorative assemblage.
