Ok....I need some help here....I LOVE this New Guinea style of mask recreated in this mug



I would love to search for a real PNG mask in this style, but know little about them . I love the happy surprised style with the concentric circles around the eyes. Does anyone know enough about PNG to point me in the right direction. Village, region, tribe, style, resources, ...anything!!??

thanks

Jimmy

That head is pretty gonzo! Wow! I'm hoping to make it to Latitude 29 next month, so I'll make a point of seeking it out!

Great job on all three, they look very rustic and authentic. PS, what is that wall behind them? Stone?
