There is a wide variety of textiles, tribal masks and many other objects to see.  Many of these were specially made for ceremonial or ritual use.  Jewellery, arms and armour and headpieces are also featured.  It is an interesting fact that some of the larger pieces are also highly regarded by some collectors for their significant decorative qualities alongside their important historic and cultural values.
