Large PNG pottery figure dating to the latter half of the 20th Century. Made by the Yaul people who live along the Yuat River in the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea. Constructed from red clay with a gray surface color. The male figure sits on a stool; large hands resting on his knees. Incising on the face and arms represent ritual body scarification. Known as healing figures, they are used by the village shaman in ceremonies intended to help the sick or spiritually distressed. Condition is very good. Minor breaks and small losses have been restored, else intact. A very rare and interesting artifact that displays nicely.

Ross Pollard built this longboat based on drawings of the ships boats used on HMS Endeavour. She was named “Yaul” after the dutch name for a ships tender. The English later adopted this word, calling a sailing boat with a mizzen mast stepped aft of the rudder post a “Yawl”.
