- Adamo and Singali holding bricks of hardened payu paste that have been prepared by their wives. The hardened payu is then scraped into hot water to make a sauce. A drum is lying on its side - it has been hollowed out from a log and has tuning pegs wedged into twine that is wrapped around the side to keep the skin membrane in place and tuned. Singlai is wearing a red sun hat and a floral patterned shirt. The shelters are made from branches that are bent into arcs to form a framework that is covered with leaves.
