A REVIEW OF THE 2014 "PARCOURS des MONDES", ART & TRIBAL FAIR

   

 

MARTIN DOUSTAR'S SKULL EXHIBIT 

 

 

There have been some great "theme exhibits" at the Parcours des Mondes but the only one more memorable for me was The Fang Exhibit at Gallerie Ratton Hourde back in 2009? 

 

(Martin Doustar)  Parcours catalog

 

Martin Doustar (Brussels) in his Paris Parcours debut, next to a Skull Korwar figure collected in 1939 in Geelvink Bay.

 

 

 

 

(left) Egyptian mummy head 700-30 BC.   (right)  A rare mummified Coptic head- Egypt.  Talk about tension, you can almost hear the object screaming.

 

(Center)  A New Guinea Sawos female reliquary figure.  The two masks make an ensemble which would be displayed together in a special shrine of a ceremonial house.

 

Great presentation, each in custom glass cases   

 

New Ireland over-modeled skull

 

 

New Guinea Papuan Gulf "gare kuku" trophy skull stick collected by Thomas Schultze Westrum in Wowobo village in 1966.  An effigy figure is incised into the forehead!

 

Wow, what an art experience!

 

 

Opening night

 

A magnificent "Tsantsa" 

 

 

 

Probably the best Solomon Island skull for sale in a long time.  Vella Lavella Island, collected in the 19th c.  There are X-rays of the head in Martin's book "Golgotha".  A must see and very cool.
