Papua New Guinea, Pig House, 1983

Papua New Guinea, Pig House, 1983 - I had never heard of a "pig house" prior to going to New Guinea. In the Highlands, pig houses were common. Pigs were one of the mainstays of the economy, used for weddings, "compensation", items of trade and even temporary pets. Here, a piglet exits the door.
