How many of you are interested in Primitive Art? We have a few pieces in our house, mostly from Indonesia and West Africa. My wife has just acquired a Papuan Warrior Dress from West Papua. I think this is a purely ceremonial dress, I can’t imagine how impractical it would be in combat. The primary objective is to frighten and invoke superstitious fears in opponents. It is made from jungle fibers and shell beads with a carved shell nosepiece. This is now guarding the back door to our lounge room.
