In 2010 my wife and I traveled to and explored Papua New Guinea. We have over 50 pieces to sell.All of them are what is considered post-contact artwork of Papua New Guinea. That is to say that they were made after the 1960s when explorers met and influenced the tribal cultures of Papua New Guinea. Before the 60s many of the tribes were cannibals.
