I don't own any, but figured I'd put this here. Several of these stories popping up the past couple days about New Guinea human thigh bone daggers.

This collection belongs to an old friend, she is 85 years old. She and her husband have traveled all over the world since the early 60's. She must have hundreds of artifacts from all over the world that she has collected along the way. I love visiting her because she lives in a fabulous MCM house up in the hills in Tarzana that she bought in 1959 and she has not touched anything to change the house. This is part of her PNG collection.














i know white walls arent tiki at all but it clearly shows here that all the shades of brown/black against the white really shows the best. in order for it to display right against tan/brown it needs to be lit properly otherwise it just blends in
