A Day at the #Museum Featuring Cultural Tribes of #PapuaNewGuinea and #Australia

I had the pleasure to explore aboriginal artwork and culture at the Daura Gallery, located at Lynchburg College, which has been set up by a group of Museum Studies students!! I enjoyed learning about particular Australian tribes, the meaning of their artwork, and the gender roles of their society!

Besides the aboriginal art exhibit on display, this one about the Olpela tribe on Papua New Guinea was adjacent and went to explore the art and culture of this tribe!

A lesson about sex education and for these men, they use these "penis shields" for bodily protection and censorship from children and unmarried women!
