Masque à igname de l'ethnie Abelam. Les masques à ignames servent à costumer les plus belles ignames sélectionnées au moment de la récolte. Cette racine est une des principales sources alimentaires dans la vallée du fleuve Sépik. Ce masque représente la tête de l'igname, manière très symbolique de prouver que ces tubercules sacrés ont bien une âme... Vannerie en joncs et pigments naturels.

Yam masks serve for dressing up the most beautiful yams just harvested. This root is one of the main food resource in the Sepik river valley. This mask in basketwork represents the head of the yam. Very symbolic way of proving that these sacred tubers indeed have a soul...
