- Museum number
Slide (colour); one of a sequence of photographs illustrating the process of a Wahgi man (Kinden Kulam) decorating to dance in the Pig Festival. Here Kinden adjusts his long dancing apron (konzap). He’s already put on his headdress of Pesquet’s Parrot feathers, his bead forehead band (biis mambel), and arm bands (angl mum ekle). Behind him (upper right) hang the black bird of paradise plumes he will shortly add to his headdress; the steel ‘patrol box’, bamboo flutes and suitcases on the floor behind him belong to the fieldworkers, in whose house Kinden is dressing. Photograph taken January 10th 1980, Topkalap, Wahgi Valley, Papua New Guinea.
