The works of art published here were collected during two trips Michael C. Rockefeller made in 1961 to the Asmat Papuans of New Guinea. In gathering works, in photographing people, in taking extensive field notes, Michael C. Rockefeller's purpose was to record and preserve the art of a disappearing culture, to document the context of its creation, to understand its creators. Includes an Index of villages.
