WSU Expeditions to Asmat 2012

      There are three works of Asmat art currently on display in Ablah Library, Wichita
      State University: two ancestor (Bisj) poles and one soul ship. These woodcarvings
      are on loan from the university's Lowell D. Holmes Museum of Anthropology, and
      are part of an extensive collection of Asmat art collected by the museum in the
      summer of 2001. The Asmat live in the Indonesian province of Irian Jaya on the
      western half of the island of New Guinea. The woodcarvings on display in Ablah
      Library are excellent examples of the relatively rare, monumental, wood sculptures
      that are an integral part of the ceremonial life of the Asmat. This exhibit sheds light
      on Asmat culture - both the art and the people.

      This exhibit was displayed in Spring 2012. It was accompanied by a panel exhibit.
