This is a beautiful War Shield from the Mountain OK People of the West Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea is from the 1980's. The Telefol were part of a ritual system encompassing all of the Min peoples. The Telefol defeated the Telefol-speaking Iligimin people after the Iligimin people razed the Telefolip in the 19th century. The Telefol then proceeded to settle their lands. They then went on to defeat the Untou people, ritualistically cannibalizing the adults and absorbing the children into their group. This amazing and Museum Quality war shield was collected in the field and purchased from a private collection. Beautiful!
