Lines, Papau New Guinea by Lisa Kristine

Lines, Papau New Guinea

The Wayie Tokma Moguma tribe are startling and wondrous. Their body paint, traditionally executed in brown and white stripes, makes for a wild and awesome display of power. The green moss of the Moguma’s province, gathered and used as a wig, is worn only during ceremony. The Moguma use shrill, high pitched voices while throwing their tongues out of their mouth and tossing their eyes back to expose the whites. The large poles, used for striking the ground, encourage dance and maintain the tribe’s pulse in ceremony.
