Short fur is incorporated into this design.
Bilum or string bags made by people in PNG.  Often carried resting on the back and suspended from the forehead by the strap to act as a carrier for an infant or to hold a heavy load of vegies or maybe carry bui plant and lime to chew as a mouthful stained red.
The culture of PNG is one in touch with 'the spirits' which are used to explicate many incidents. 
Stories of rampaging superbugs are reported in our media, for instance around the serious problem of TB so maybe sharmans would be as good as any cure. TB is endemic in PNG and Indonesia and is infectious. Some form of preventative treatment is available.
