Penis sheaths, also known as phallocrypts ("penis' hide"), are everyday wear for the indigenous peoples in the mountain villages of Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya. They are hand created from materials such as gourds or wood, and are decorated with clay pigments, shells, dangling seed beads, and bark fiber string. Penis sheaths are held in place, in an upright position, by a thin string tied around the waist. The larger of the sheaths are help up with bands of cloth.
