Wayne Heathcote, with a very early Solomon Island kneeling female figure.  Item was their catalog submission piece.   

 

(Wayne Heathcote)  A Vanuatu Ambrym Island janus staff

 

(Wayne Heathcote)  

Wayne has not been in attendance for several years but the booth is staffed by Jack Sadovnick and Wayne's brother Volker.  They likely had the strongest sales of the fair.  You'll notice to the right of Volker (far right) is an Indonesian Tau tau figure from the Toraja people of Sulawesi.  Its worth noting since there was a buzz about its fine quality.  I understand it sold quickly.

 

(Wayne Heathcote) A Vanuatu Rambaramp effigy figure

 

Joel Cooner- Dallas,  Looking great as always

 

(Joel Cooner)  I liked his Songye kifwebe mask.
