A product of Palawan Island, Philippine Archepelago, this finely crafted blowgun quiver was collected by noted anthropologist Henry Otley Beyer in his study of native Philippine ethnic culture. With its body formed of bamboo sections, a long wooden hook serves to attach the quiver to the hunter's sash and also provides a firm closure for the top. The hook is graced with unusually skillful carvings of the prey: a wild boar and a bird. Bicolor bands of finely woven vegetable strands and a shaped wooden stick secure the hook in place. Remains of boar's-hair tufts still decorate the top and several blow-darts are still inside. Excellent condition with fine patina. Approximately 18 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. A custom-made stand allows the work to be displayed upright. A very fine and attractive example of Southeast Asian ethnographic art. Early Twentieth Century.
