The hobby started more than five decades ago, when I, as a young boy, received my first Keris. This was the beginning of an Ethnographic collection of Weapons from Asia and Africa. It didn’t take long before our sons also got “infected” and joined the hobby.

Three decades ago our interest spread to Stone Age Artefacts of very early periods and has grown to cover the wonderful world of Stone Age Cultures.

Now, after more than fifty years of collecting, we are proud to share our collection via this website. We are hoping to encourage the interest in the collection of antique weapons from Asia and Africa and to share our knowledge.

Thank you for visiting our site, we hope you will enjoy it. Feel free to contact us at info@bigyellowbird.nl and let us hear your comments, suggestions and/or other ideas you may have.
