Korafe - Papua New Guinea

XXXIII-27 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Korafe | Amuioan, Tufi, Oro province | Papua New Guinea, 2017

 

The impressive Korafe headdress is worn only by men and is constructed from the brightly coloured feathers of the birds-of-paradise, sometimes combined with leaves. Shaped as a crown, they are worn along with grass skirts, shell necklaces and facial paint to form the traditional costume, which is mainly worn for festivities and ceremonies. Making a  eaddress takes a huge amount of effort and time, and each man must go alone into the forest to search for the right feathers for their own headdress, each one a piece of wearable art.

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.
