Lake Kutubu, Southern Highlands PNG

Around the lake are various limestone caves where the bones of people are arranged overlooking the lake.

Markings on the cave wall that are a system of keeping record of how many enemies a person has killed

Thanks! I found it very interesting as well -- especially the different views on skeletal remains held by the local people

Yeah, sorry about that. It kind of freaked me out at first as well, but that's their local culture so I overcame my personal feelings. On that note I would like to apologise to anyone else who found it too freaky. But maybe we find it that way just because of the way we were raised :) I didn't know what other subject to post this under except for "People" though

Stop obsessing about gear and focus on your own art and creativity. Nurture and love the artist inside yourself.

Nope. Check the posting rules. No bans on dead people, decomposed people or disassembled people. They are nude, but that's really not a problem here.

Very interesting. Kind of scary to be amongst people who kill others so easily, and keep score no less. Reminds me of Detroit.
