Great gift for family, friends & loved ones. Collecting Tribal Art Is My Passion, Food For The Soul, I Have Been Collecting Tribal Art And Antiques For Well Over 25 Years, My Collecting Trips Have Taken Me To Many Distant Countries, The Artifacts Of Interest Are Authentic Tribal And Eth nographic Implements Used In Divination And Healing.My Travels Have Taken Me To Out Of The Way Places Where There Are No Cars Or Hotels, Some Of The Remote Places Are Only Reachable By Foot, So I Often Take Long Treks Into The Bush To Find Some Of These Rare Pieces, But Mostly Its A Question Of Being In The Right Place At The Right Time, My Collection Consists Of Ethnographic Material From Animist Tribal Peoples Of Africa Asia And South East Asia. However if you see something that you like, you can ask me if it is still available.
