Superb Boiken Culture Talipun, Papua New Guinea. For Sale
Superb Boiken Culture Talipun, Papua New Guinea.
Hello, my name is Greg Hamson. I am the brother of Oceanic Art dealer Michael Hamson. I have been working with Michael for the past few years and have now started my own company—Art of the South Seas. From my experience field collecting in some of the more remote areas of Papua New Guinea I have assembled a large inventory of objects and, more importantly, an extensive knowledge of the art. Recently I have been fortunate to obtain a large private collection of Pacific art here in the United States that has bolstered my inventory. So feel confident that what you are buying here is an older authentic piece of Oceanic art that is 100% unconditionally guaranteed—forever. And if you have older, authentic items of Oceanic art I am aggressively buying material and will pay top prices for individual items or entire collections.
