Iatmul - Papua New Guinea

XXXV-3 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Iatmul |Yentchen village, Sepik River, The Lowlands | Argentina, 2017


The Iatmuls form one of the largest cultural groups around the Sepik, with around 10,000 people in some 25 villages. They are known for their decorative wood carvings, ancient spirit houses and ritualistic crocodile-inspired scarification. Women are the main carers and providers: they catch the fish which can be exchanged for sago flour to make pancakes. The commonly held spiritual belief among the Iatmul people concentrates on the spirits of the natural phenomena around them, such as the river, swamp and forest.

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.
