These beautiful Copper Repousse Panels were likely made in the 1970s.  The skills for doing copper repousse art were being taught by husband & wife art teachers Ulli and Georgina Beier, I think they were teaching at the University of PNG.

The most famous artists they discovered were Mathias Kauage  & Akis. Kauage did copper repousse along with other very talented artists that remained mostly unknown.

The Copper Panel with Gope Board imagery has a name on the back of Mr M. Mauvake but the other two panels with the field photo of the woman artist working her name is unknown.  I am hoping that someone will see it & know who she is ? and if so please contact me.  She is likely a Tolai woman from New Britain as one of her artworks depict Duk Duk  Costumed Dancers.

These beautiful panels show the great artistry of the people in Papua New Guinea.
