Ba Johannes
Medium:
wood paint
National Origin:
Maroon
Type:
Paddle
Description:
Maroon paddles vary in size, shape, decoration according to their use, ownership, and region. Traditionally, paddles for rowing large cargo canoes were very wide. Women's paddles are about half size of men's paddles because women are only suppose to use short, brisk paddling strokes. As seen here paddles are lavishly carved and painted with colorful design and motifs.
