I was visiting Australia recently and we popped into this museum to check out the Aboriginal art exhibits. As luck would have it while hunting for the bathroom I stumbled into their Melanesian exhibits on the second floor. My head about exploded! The huge room was literally crammed with case after case of carvings, weapons and masks covering most of Melanesia! This museum does not advertise this collection in any way, but it is a must see for all Tikiphiles. Please check out a few pictures I took of the exhibit by clicking on the URL site below:
