To ornament local tombs honoring the dead, he carves and paints wooden poles topped with amazing scenes of animals, people and tableaux associated with the deceased. Nera Jambruk heads a team of men in Papua New Guinea who build and paint the magnificent spirit houses in each village.

These dramatic images retell the story of the first birth and have magical powers to affect daily life. Written by Anonymous See less
