New Caledonia, Bag with sling stones
The bag could be fastened round a man’s waist with these straps. This enabled the carrier to keep his hands free, while enabling the objects contained in the bag to be easily reached. This makes plausible the exclusive function of the bag as being to transport sling stones.
Bought at Galerie Lemaire Prinsengracht (1960-1978)
