Asmat Papua - Camouflage Asmat Portrait by Marc Weiglein

Asmat warrior in full camouflage costume, made purely of leaves and branches. He was stand-up paddling and screaming an ancient song while I captured this shot. One can only imagine how their enemies must have felt when such warriors rowed towards them by the hundreds! I took thousands of photos during the trip, most of them “in action”, and this capture is definitely in my top5. Hope you like it as much as I do!
