Sepik Canoe, PNG National Museum

This is yin and yang, Sepik Style. The Sepik is PNG’s largest river, running through the North West of the Country. Saltwater crocodiles, and the relationship between people and crocodiles appears to loom large in Sepik folklore. This war canoe, maybe 50 feet long, is out the front of the PNG National Museum, near Parliamen Haus in Waigani. An interesting depiction of that struggle, a man, eating a crocodile, eating a man!
