Henry James

It is also one of the most rural, with only 18 per cent of its people living in urban centres. The country is also one of the world's least explored one, culturally and geographically, and many undiscovered species of plants and animals are believed to live in the interior of Papua New Guinea.

Because of this diversity, many different styles of cultural expression have emerged; each group has created its own expressive forms in art, dance, weaponry, costumes, singing, music, architecture and much more.
