Sepik: The Arts of Papua New Guinea


  • Musee du Quai Branly 37 Quai Branly Paris, IDF, 75007 France (map)

This exhibition presents a collection of 230 sculptures linked to the Sepik Valley, a large swampland in the north of Papua New Guinea. The exhibition gradually unveils a major figure common to all cultures of the 'lower' and 'middle' Sepik: the founding ancestor(s). The exhibition illustrates the multiple forms and variations in which these ancestral figures appear, from their public forms to their 'secret' forms.
