Bowies Art Centre

Top choice arts & crafts in Kaminabit

Run by local carver and artist Ronnie, this riverfront store in the first (easternmost) village has the best concentration of artefacts on the Sepik, from Tanbanum masks and Minimbit guardian carvings to locally made shell-and-pig-tusk necklaces, penis gourds from the Upper Sepik, yam masks from inland villages and more. Ronnie does remarkable art with crocodile skulls (from K2000).
