Not all Papua New Guinea Tribal Masks were made to be worn by people. Some masks were made to “decorate” sacred flutes, the front of canoes, the HausMan, as lucky amulets and even yams. Other masks were not made to wear directly on the head but were part of a larger assemblage.
Types of Papua New Guinea Tribal masks vary from very small Amulet masks only a Few centimeters high to huge masks over 10 meters tall.
