Primitive

The largest selection on the Web of unique, hand-carved cultural artifacts from the islands of Borneo, Sumatra and New Guinea.  The Dayak of Borneo are well-known for shrunken heads; the Batak of Sumatra are the only group to have practiced cannibalism and have their own written language; and the Asmat of New Guinea are remembered as the group that were responsible for the death of Michael Rockefeller, son of former Vice-President Nelson Aldridge Rockefeller.

The items in this collection are authentic – not mass-produced knockoffs.
