Face-to-Face with a Rare Uli Statue

New York | May 2016

Leading Sotheby's African, Oceanic, and Pre-Columbian Art sale on 7 May is the best Uli figure ever to come to auction. An Uli figure represents an ideal, ancestral clan leader from New Ireland, a small island off the Northeast coast of Papua New Guinea. Watch the video to see why this specific statue is so celebrated and come to Sotheby’s when the exhibition opens on 29 April to lock eyes with the Uli and experience its intensity for yourself.
