Iatmul - Papua New Guinea

XXXV-4 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

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


To attract good spirits, Iatmul men wear distinctive mai masks during ceremonies and rituals. They used to also be worn in times of conf lict to scare off the enemy, and they are integral to Iatmul beliefs, values and history. The masks themselves depict long faces and noses, and they are carved from wood and decorated with shells and pig tusks. They represent totems such as ancestors and supernatural family members.

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.
