Papua is bordered by the nation of Papua New Guinea to the east, and by West Papua province to the west. Since 2002, Papua province has special autonomy status, making it a special region.It was formerly called Irian Jaya (and earlier West Irian or Irian Barat) and comprised all of Indonesian New Guinea. In 2002 the current name was adopted and in 2003 West Papua province was created from western parts of Papua province. The Asmat are an ethnic group of New Guinea, residing in the Papua province of Indonesia. The Asmat inhabit a region on the island's southwestern coast bordering the Arafura Sea, with lands totaling approximately 18,000 km² (7,336 mi²) and consisting of mangrove, tidal swamp, freshwater swamp, and lowland rainforest.

Collecting tribal art is my passion, I have been collecting tribal art and antiques for well over 25 years, my collecting trips have taken me to many distant countries, the artifacts of interest are authentic tribal and ethnographic implements used in divination and healing. My travels have taken me to out of way places where there are no cars or hotels, some of the remote places are only reachable by foot , so I often take long treks into the bush to find some of these rare pieces , but mostly its a question of being in the right place at the right time , my collection consists of ethnographic material from animist tribal peoples of Africa Asia and south East Asia.
