Agats is a village on the remote SE coast of the Asmat region of Papua Province in Indonesia. The province is also known as West Papua and Indira Jaya. The inhabitants are famed for their artistic ‘primitive’ woodcarving, and Agats has an interesting museum filled with woodcarvings and other objects. Villagers, the Asmat people, are an ethnic group with one of the most well-known and vibrant woodcarving traditions in the Pacific, so that their art is sought by collectors worldwide. Interestingly, modern civilization did not reach this area until recently.

It is a land of exceptional natural grandeur, with jungles that are among the wildest, most impenetrable in the world. Eternal snow-capped mountain ridges, over 5,000 meters high, results in walls that plunge hundreds of meters down onto floors filled with small glacier lakes. It has scenic beaches in abundance as well as immense stretches of marshlands. Cool grassy meadows lie at the foot of the towering mountains. Rivers cut through dark forests until their sluggish, crocodile infested mouths, disgorge the water into the sea. Dutch outposts, missionary settlements, and foreign expeditions finally made inroads into this isolated community in the 1950s and 60s.

Despite prized among the world’s finest primitive arts, nonetheless, to the Asmat themselves, their woodcarvings are inextricably linked with the spirit world, and therefore are not principally considered as aesthetic objects. Much of the highly original art of the Asmat is symbolic of warfare, headhunting, and warrior-ancestor worship. Today in the village of Agats raised walkways form a network above the muddy ground. The walkways link the village landmarks – churches, mosque, schools, Catholic mission offices, post office, police station, several government offices, and a few shops selling basic goods. At high tide, small canoes and outboard motor dugouts weave through a small network of canals.
