The figure was subsequently in the collection of Ernst Heinrich, whose great passion was for objects from New Ireland and the Bismarck Archipelago. Heinrich 'traveled all over Germany asking former colonials about any possible artifacts that they might have brought back [...]' (Conru, ed., Bismarck Archipelago Art, 2014, p. 61) and over the course of several decades he assembled an extraordinary collection, which he housed in his 'Kannibalen Haus'. An interior photograph of the 'Kannibalen Haus' shows Heinrich astride a rocking horse in front of uli figures and malagan carvings, including the the present figure.
