"Huli Wigman (Papua, New Guinea)", 2019

SKU: 31015

Artist: John Peaspanen


About the Artwork: I have always loved the ornate and colorful regalia of the vibrant, traditional cultures of New Guinea. This man’s raft-like hat is made of felted hair and is festooned with feathers, flowers and plants. It also makes me think that, perhaps, I am missing out by not painting my beard blue, too.


“I created this series of indigenous portraits to celebrate the diversity and unique tribal beauty found across the globe. Societal ideals and ideas of what is beautiful vary among cultures. One group’s perfection can often seem extreme to others. However, it is in these unique displays that we see that we are all not so different, after all. We are all ONE TRIBE.” —John Peaspanen
