I have been very fortunate to obtain a small collection of Iniet figures. The Tolai Iniet secret society is one that has intrigued people for many years. It is a religious society of men. There are stories of rituals that were performed to give forever youth and immortality. There is very little known about the societies and pieces very rarely come up for sale. There are mentions of these societies all over the world but mostly situated in New Britain, Papua New Guinea. These pieces were probably made no more than 100 years ago but the lack of modern technology meant these were carved in a very crude way making them look significantly older. They are hugely decorative and great talking points for any room. They are for sale individually but group purchases at a improved price are possible. This is a lovely large example. Nicely modelled turtle. Very sweet.
