New Ireland, Malagan scultpture and ceremony - general

 
Malagan sculpture and ceremony in northern New Ireland Province, Papua New Guinea.

The people of the northern New Ireland mark the death of members of their community through a series of ceremonies known in English as malagan (also spelt malangan or malanggan). In these funeral ceremonies the deceased are honoured and commemorated through carvings, also known as malagan. Malagans also feature at other ceremonies associated with rites of passage, for instance births and initiations. The use of malagans is not merely ceremonial. It also acts as means to control rights over clan land, inter-clan relationships and to record the movement of people. Malagan tradition remains a vital part of New Ireland society.

Malagans are designed by a carver in remembrance of the life of a specific person. Symbolically, the malagan relates to the life force or energy of the deceased. Aspects of the deceased and their relationships within their community may be represented in the malagan through humanoid forms as well as images of birds and animals. These sculptural forms can be dance masks, figures or architectural features, such as beams and posts. The carver produces each malagan from the wood, Alstonia scholaris, he uses white, red and black pigments to decorate the sculpture and finally ornaments the malagan with natural fibre and the shell, Turbopetholatus.

The different forms of malagan mark periods within the funerary cycle for northern New Ireland peoples. Upon a persons death the designs which relate to them are obtained from relatives. These are given to a carver who constructs the masks worn at the initial funerary ceremony. The funeral ceremonies include processions, dances, songs, speeches (and sometimes christian services/prayers). During the funeral, masks are worn by selected male clansmen, when the deceased is buried some of these masks are thrown into the grave, some left by the grave site and some are displayed in commemorative shelters - called haus malanga.

These display houses also incorporate malagan sculptural forms symbolically commemorating the achievements and personality of the deceased through the designs used. The display house includes architectural sculptures of beams and supports with complex interleaving struts and forms incorporating the flora and fauna important to the clan of the deceased. A number of humanoid forms are carved into posts and placed in the ground in front of the house and finally some of the masks worn during the funeral ceremony are placed within. Each carving featured relates to the bonds shared between relatives and clansmen. This house will remain on display until the community cease mourning. Once the ceremonial rituals have ceased the carvings are either destroyed or removed from the area, many being sold to tourists or collectors. As the spirit of the deceased has departed so too must the malagan.
