More Centrepieces from Papua New Guinea


In my last post, The Centrepiece, I wrote about learning and making my own headdress. Here, I wanted to show in colour,  some of the most beautiful headdresses from Papua New Guinea (PNG).  There are too many to show but I have made a random selection of headdresses in these unpublished photos from a recent cultural show. Our culture, the art and body adornment are some of the most colourful things that attract photographers from across the world. In every tribe and the work we put into most of our traditional costume preparation before we show, the headdress remains the centrepiece.

These images were taken by a close friend and a well-known PNG-based photographer. Lucky for me, he had just returned from the annual Goroka Show where he captured these images.
