Description: This powerful little malagan head comes from a frieze originally made for Julius Chan (PNG Prime minister) and has a really intense stare that seems to look at you from all sorts of angles. It has a great presence that only a master carver can produce when making something with a purpose. The ears have been damaged and reglued back on, as have the tips of the headpiece, there is a large stable crack down on one side, and the natural pigments are still bright.

This section is a part of optimizing this web site page for the keyword Papua New Guinea War club.  In the world of the internet, a website will be visited by google bots. Amongst other things, the length of the article or page should be over 300 words. This makes it necessary to add additional words so that a page ranks better.  What you are reading right now is a part of that optimization process.
The process can be frustrating and I hope you can excuse me for placing this extra text. Three hundred words may not sound a lot but it is often more than needed for a punchy description.
It is not only keyword that I use this technique for. I have used it for other artifacts and artworks from Papua New Guinea and oceanic art.
