Overview

For twenty years now the Barbier-Mueller Museum has mounted exhibitions that have travelled throughout Europe, North America, and the Far East. To people everywhere the museum has presented its extensive collections of tribal art, brought together over three quarters of a century by three generations of a single family." "For the first time ever forty pieces of sculpture from New Ireland, selected for their beauty, rarity, and originality, are being brought out of the museum's storerooms where they have been conserved - several for over half a century - and put on display in the galleries of Paris's Foundation Bismarck, a unique event that ran from 28 April to 28 June 1997. Unlike traditional tribal sculpture, largely limited to a number of conventional forms which native craftsmen have little choice but to respect, the masks and statues of New Ireland are striking for their freedom of invention. Animal and humanlike motifs are combined with infinite variety according to rules laid down by the rites employing such objects.
