A sub-collection comprising images and descriptions of 545 items from the Solomon Islands held at the UQ Anthropology Museum. A wide range of carved, woven and incised items primarily made from plant material, including wood, coconut fibre and orchid vine; shell, including clam and turtle shell; as well as teeth and feathers. Originating from across all Solomon Island provinces, in particular Malaita and Temotu Provinces, the items were collected by many, including Queensland government agent Captain Sydney Mercer-Smith in the late 19th century; Brisbane businessman William Effey and Tasmanian photographer J. W. Beattie in the early 20th century; and Jean and Russell Herbert in the 1970s and 1980s.
