35mm slide (photographic)(colour)
- Museum number
Slide (colour); at the climax to their Pig Festival decorated men, visible mainly from their black bird of paradise feather headdresses, charge onto their ceremonial ground and circle clockwise the Mond post and Bolyim house. The latter is the small thatched structure at the centre, on which two men stand performing Bolyim kir, ritual fire-making. Spectators pack the ceremonial ground and also watch from erected platforms, on which sides of pork will later be consumed, cooked using the criss-cross stacked firewood visible in the background. Photograph taken January 13th 1980 at Kombulno, the ceremonial ground of Kekanem and Anzkanem clans, Wahgi Valley, Papua New Guinea.
