This is a beautiful old New Guinea Pig Killing Apron from the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The most beautiful artworks of the Papua New Guinea Highlands were made to decorate the human body for dances including ceremonies such as pig-killing. Such decorations were a manifestation of vitality and power. These aprons are worn by the men at sing sings and during other certain festivities in the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Men wear them tucked into their bark girdles by two side straps, dangling in front of their aprons. They put them on when donning their best finery only, to enhance further their appearance for some grand event. They are very finely woven bush twine, heavily decorated with natural earth pigments, cane chains, and sometimes tipped with pig tails. A wonderful addition to your home or collection.
