🌴Asmat Owam🌴
Another fantastic and beautifully made Owam from Irian Jaya. The Owam was a symbol of elite honor to an Asmat headhunter for collecting more than 10 heads. Each hanging bamboo chute symbolizing a head taken. It was also an important part of manhood ceremonies. It is made of sago palm fiber, bamboo chutes, and other jungle woven fibers. This piece was collected in the 50’s in Ocanep by a Dutch missionary. It has probably crafted in the turn of the century. It has a good home in the Karlin collection! For more in depth history on the Owam, refer to my first Owam post!
Provenance:Collected in Otsjenep by Dutch missionary: Ex Tanenbaum collection Canada: Karlin collection USA.

🌴Asmat Owam🌴
The Owam was a very honorary award and symbol of prowess that was given to the best and most fierce of Asmat headhunters. It was given to a warrior when he had taken 10 or more heads. Comprised completely of jungle fibers, sago palm and bamboo chutes. It has been ornately decorated with jobs tears and a multitude of tropical bird feathers. Each hanging bamboo chute would represent a head taken and more would be added as time went on which is why there is not an even amount distributed. This Owam contains 16 bamboo chutes. The Owam would be worn over the front of the chest during celebrations and feasts, and would be worn on the back during headhunting raids. The sight of an Owam worn by an enemy headhunter would instill fear, as it was recognized all over Asmat as only being worn by the best warriors. This is an exceptionally rare piece and is almost unheard of outside of a museum as they just haven’t survived over the years as headhunting has died off in Asmat. This was collected by Father Gerard Zegwaard in 1951 and brought back to Europe. The collection number on it is from an old Dutch museum. Provenance: Ex Adamowicz collection, France.
