The Abelam Ceremonial House from Papua New Guinea is over seven metres high, making it one of the tallest and also most significant of the exhibited objects in the Oceania collections of the Ethnologisches Museum. The building, which is reconstructed in parts, brings us closer to the construction and artistic principles of Abelam and shows essential steps in the initiation rites, which originally took place in the inner chambers of the ceremonial buildings. In the hybrid group tour with augmented reality, a mediator expands the digital inspection of the object with unpublished material from the archive and enables visitors to discover for themselves, virtually, the inner chambers of the ceremonial building and their impressive key sculpture, the Puti figure. Register for the hybrid group tour on site and find out how the Puti figure and the ceremonial  house are a portrayal of the cosmos for the Abelam!
