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.

Like many other artifacts, this object is not just an artifact it is art. Collectors from around the world collect art from different regions. This art is Tribal art. In reality, Tribal art or ethnographic art is art from around the world.
