Willy and the man who killed his brother. (The Cannibal)
Product: Garry Orriss
Museum Quality Photo Art
Poster Size: 100cm x 70cm / 39¼ " x 27½"
Notes: Inspired by photographs of
Suki Cannibals taken by the artists grandfather Allen Sneesby in 1937, this image
shows a tribal warrior from Papua New Guinea in traditional dress holding the
skull of the man who killed his brother. The man was killed in a war that
started over the theft of three pigs in which 17 people were killed including
Willy's father, brother and two cousins. Because of animist belief the teeth
have been removed and placed in two black burnt bowls, (see picture).
Some of the skeleton has then been placed with Willy's ancestors to confuse the
victim's vengeful ghost. This Poster is from the Garry Orriss 'When Pictures
Tell a Story Series' and comes with a complete explanation to the history,
meanings and designs within the artwork. This outstanding photo art poster has
been manufactured with the worlds best gloss lamination technologies and is nominated
for the International Poster of the Year Award. The poster is printed on one
