This carving depicts a woman and three crocodile-like animals. Each animal has a long crocodile type body, but the heads are all different. One looks like a crocodile, one has dog-type ears, and another has more rabbit-type ears. They probably represent mythical hybrid animals. The Iatmul are people who live along the Sepic river in Papua New Guinea. In the Iatmul creation story, the crocodile is the first ancestor.
An Asmat shield with red ochre and white clay decoration. The Asmat are people who live in New Guinea. The shields were originally created for going into battle for revenge, and the shield would be named after the person being avenged. This shield was probably intended for decoration, because it is small and does not have a handle.
