Kaluli - Papua New Guinea

XXXIII-23 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Kaluli | Mount Bosavi, Southern Highlands province, The Highlands | Papua New Guinea, 2017


Kalulis wear an elaborate traditional costume during festivities. The most impressive element is the headpiece, with its huge fan of white feathers from cockatoos hunted by their ancestors. Tied around the men’s ankles are straps containing seeds, which rattle with every step. The pace is set by the beating of the famous kundu drums with heads made from the leathery skins of giant lizards. The dancers repeatedly rub their hands over the skin to warm the leather, which improves the sound of the drum.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
