The ghost who walks too?

Another example of the Wahgi people from the Western provinces of Papua New Guinea appropriating the Phantom comic book character onto a traditional tribal shield c.1970
This shield is held in the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria-International Galleries.
Note the inclusion of the found metal car badge on the Phantoms' belt buckle.
