Asmattans 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 village, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. The Asmat is a large, steamy hot tidal swamp. Men and women enter by different doors and sit on opposites sides of the church. They are carrying large pieces of heart of palm to share with each other. Image from the book project Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects.
