The first five are masks and carvings form Papua New Guinea when I collected them back in 1972 when I worked in that country.
The next one is a photo of their daily implements. Top one is a battle axe made from their prized blue stone. The other two are are stone adzes used for digging in their gards. Back in the early 70's they were truly stone age people. I have no idea what they are like today.

Next one shows a penis sheath, bone dagger. The round stone next to them is usually affixed to a stick to use as a weapon. Below them is a serving bowl.
Next one is a carving of a crocodile.
