Photographer's Note

I went to Pumo, a small village close to wamena, with a friend of mine. On our way back we came in a small village where they were preparing a bakar batu.

With a bakar batu they dig a hole in the ground, fill it with leaves, spices and meat (mainly babi, pork) and after that they close the pit. Meanwhile they are heating stones on a huge fire. These hot stones come on top of the food to stew the food ready (which can take some hours).

The old man is wearing the traditional Papuan dressing, the gourd.
