Harold and Mary Cohen : The Papua New Guinea Slide Collection
Object ID:
6.01.0045.HMC
Place:
Papua New Guinea
Description:
Several groups of dancers wait for their turns to perform at the festival. Each group has large standards that are variously colored in blue, yellow, red and black. Since standards are very tall and heavy, each man needs help with laying down the standard so that it is not damaged. A man sits with his back towards the photographer. He wears a large bilum bag shielding his body.
