This may have been talked about before and i apologize if it has but I watched a great documentary last night on Netflix called " The search for Michael Rockefeller " and if you are a collector of PNG art you should check it out as he was involved in purchasing art from tribes in the area before he went missing and you will see in the doc a lot of great examples of carvings...huts ... canoes ... tapia ... and different tribes masks and art including the Asmat's. Pretty interesting and again ...chock full of PNG carvings!

These two are the only other ones I own, for now.

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.

In the last couple of years i've been fortunate to have been able to add a few really, really nice PNG pieces to my collection but i have to say that is probably the cream of the crop.



A woven mask from the Karawari River area, circa 1930. I got this, another woven mask from the same region and era, and a handful of spears for an absolute steal from the same seller. I doubt that i'll ever come across such a bargain again.

Amazing piece, any chance you can put pictures of the rest of your PNG pieces?

Outstanding piece Robbie. Is it big enough to fit a human head?
I’m with Hilda-More, More!
Cheers

This is me wearing it David, and in my hands the spears and other mask i mentioned in the post above. You would have seen pics of my other stuff over on Instagram, Hilda, but when i take some better photos i'll definitely post them here to this thread.

Robbie, you’re gonna think that I’m lying again.
I shared your pic with CeCe and when I asked her to guess who was behind the mask- she quickly responded with “Robbie”.
I almost dropped my Paralyzing Pufferfish.
Give us some warning when you’re gonna raid the States again-Hope it’s soon Cabron!
Later
Btw, that’s some awesome PNG stuff.Also, I will pose the same Question to Joe and Rosemary on Saturday at the Original Tiki Marketplace.

Wow! CeCe nailed it and there wasn't really anything in that photo to give me away. Hopefully i'll be back soon David.

Here's a PNG storyboard i picked up today. Had my eyes on this for quite a while and the stall owner in the antique store is closing down so everything is 50% off. I'm glad i held out because although it was a reasonable price to start with, now i got it for a steal.
Now i'd just like to know what it says.

(Photo has been enhanced slightly but the colours are pretty accurate).
