Young Asmat Man in war Canoe

A visit to the Asmat village of Syuru. As we approached in Zodiacs we were greeted by close to 100 war canoes filled with men and boys dressed in traditional clothing and with faces painted. They surrounded our zodiacs and ushered us to the village. This young man attracted me because of his wild hair.
