PNG Omie tapa (beaten bark cloth) in Australia by The Omie Cultural Business Group PNG

The Omie world is alive with the minutia of nature – grub eggs, beetle homes, insects, hornbill beaks, teeth, feathers, the lizards jaw bone, stars, the moon. The micro and macro worlds intersect. The Omie live in the mountains between Kokoda and Mt Lamington, Oro. They have a diverse and highly coloured tapa aesthetic. The Omie welcome you to this exhibition and to their remote Omie territory.
