An Omu Figure, Weo Village, Jerep River NW Asmat; Omu is the name of the type of spirit figure and the ceremony that it belongs. The Omu ceremony only happens in a few small villages in the remote NW Asmat Area. "I made many trips to the Asmat during the years 1985-1999 staying several months each trip. This was at a time when the area was mostly closed to foreigners. I made collections of artworks for many public major museum collections around the world." - Todd Barlin
