Why We Love This

The Asmats inhabit the south coast of the island of New Guinea. Fighting shields, or jamasj,are protection from both the physical and spiritual powers of the enemy. The wood is fire-hardened.The white color comes from burned and powdered mussel shells on the coast or, farther inland, from kaolin clays. The black is crushed charcoal. Red is the color of beauty and power.
