I have been collecting tribal art and antiques for well over 25 years, my collecting trips have taken me to many distant countries, the artifacts of interest are authentic tribal and ethnographic implements used in divination and healing.
my travels have taken me to out of the way places where there are no cars or hotels, some of the remote places are only reachable by foot , so I often take long treks into the bush to find some of these rarepieces, but mostly its a question of being in the right place at the right time , my collectionconsistsof ethnographicmaterial from animist tribal peoples of Africa Asia and south East Asia
