Virtual Members Noontime Talk: A Hot, One-Legged Hunter

Join Curator of Collection Paul R. Davis for a discussion of the intimidating yipwon, a type of anthropomorphic figure with radiating sharp hooks associated with men’s ceremonial spirit houses (tambaran) in the Sepik River region of Papua New Guinea.

Held every other Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to membership@menil.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
