Crocodile and Cassowary. Religious Art of the Upper Sepik River, New Guinea The Sepik River area of New Guinea has long been celebrated for the rich artistic productivity of its inhabitants, some of its styles are among the best known created by the peoples of the Pacific Islands. This heavily illustrated book is based upon the research done by the author in 1967. It is mostly a survey of a relatively unknown region in the Upper Sepik River. It describes the cults, mostly associated with warfare and fertility of a number of small tribes including the Yeragei, Bahinemo, Nggala, Wogumas. Manambu, Kwoma and the Nukuma. This book is in very good condition. Some aging of pages and a catalog number written on the back cover, but no tears and the binding is excellent.
