Oceania

Also the small Oceanic collection, assembled by Eduard von der Heydt mainly in the 1920s and 30s, includes pieces of extraordinary quality.

Most of the works come from Melanesia, the part of Oceania which has been least westernized and where the peoples in the more remote areas of the rain forest have retained their religious traditions and ceremonies.

On view are also ritual objects from the Sepik region as well as masterpieces from the New Hebrides, the Marquesas Islands, New Ireland, and Maori art from New Zealand.
