Asmattan women in the village of Komor convene to hear the assimilated Catholic and native Good Friday Mass given by one of the local missionaries, Brother Jim, in Komor, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. Men enter through another door and sit on the wooden floor on the other side of the church. The Asmat, on the Arafura Sea, is a large, steamy hot tidal swamp.
