Title: Febi youth in ceremonial dress preparing to participate in the end-of-year cultural activities at Koroba Provincial High School.
Author(s): Photographer: David R. Eastburn, 1949-
Description: This photograph was taken at Koroba Provincial High School, via Koroba, Southern Highlands (now Hela) Province, Papua New Guinea. Photographer's note: The ceremonial dress of a Febi youth includes red ochre body paint, a charcoal face ‘mask’ with white outlines, a decorated tapa cloth head-cape, cuscus fur and Raggiana Bird of Paradise feather forehead-bands, a cowrie shell necklace with a bailer shell segment centre-piece and a bamboo nose plug. Long strings of Job's tear seeds worn, as ear-laces and X ‘baldrics’, complete the image.
