Ron Perry and Carolyn Leigh in the hill country of the Maprik-Wosera area, part of the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea, in the late 1980s - we are a bit grayer now!
The painted sago bark panels on the right decorate this Abelam village's house fronts. The ancestral figures on the left are from the men's Haus Tambaran. The colors are natural pigments and dyes from the surrounding jungle.
