TROBRIAND ISLAND POSTCARDS

A Trobriand Islands craftsman hollows a log into a canoe.
The upright ribs attached to the hull stand ready to receive the gunwales.
Skilled sailors, the Trobriand Islanders still make ocean-going voyages in their canoes.

Intricate carvings cover the prow board of the completed canoe.

       

Sailing, Trobriand Island style.
