IRIAN JAYA

TRIBAL ART

           

Irian Jaya is a very old civilisation with carbon dating of remnants found on camp sites suggesting human habitation for the last 25,000 years. It also has some of the most developed and beautiful tribal art in Oceania, some examples of which are below:

This unique Fly swat comes from the Asmat Tribe and it is unusual due
to the fact that the handle is made out of the Cassowary Bird's leg bone,
and the swat portion is actually the Cassowary Bird's feathers. The
two pieces are secured with woven fabric and wire.
