Pora Pora River, Lower Seoik River, PNG.

This masks are made from the breast bone of a cassowary and relate to rituals of warfare and hunting. The cassowary is considered a very strong and aggressive creature, and its power is sought in tribal fighting. Sometimes these masks will have a woven cane surround; but more often they are collected in this more basic state.
