A Superb Collection of Old New Guinea Stone Axes Highlands of Papua New Guinea

This collection of five old Stone Axe Heads was selected solely for the beautiful shapes and colours of the stone. All are old and could be even hundreds of years old.  These are five of my favourite stone axes collected over 40 years.  My field photo above that I took of Dani & Yali Men showing their sacred Je Stones after an important ceremony in 1985 (I still have a two of these Je Stones)

I know a little about the history of each one;

See my new EXHIBITIONS GALLERY  showing the Museums and Art Galleries Exhibitions that I provided artworks for over the past 40 years. There is the link to the article about my artworks published in the prestigious Louvre Magazine in 1996

I have artwork for Museums and art Galleries but also for collectors at every stage of their collecting. I want to encourage people to explore the fine art of New Guinea & West Papua and the Pacific Islands and to be able to see and touch the artworks in a relaxed and friendly manner in my Sydney Gallery. I would like to invite you to visit my gallery and see the artworks in person and also look at my website www.oceanicartsaustralia.com where there are many Galleries & Sub Galleries to explore.

My Gallery of nearly 40 years is the last physical gallery in Sydney that specializes in New Guinea and Oceanic Art.  Sydney is very close to New Guinea & the Pacific Islands where all of these amazing artworks came from, Australia’s closest neighbors.
