Description

On Catalogue Card: “Smoking pipe and taking lime with betel, Massim.” [Typed text]

Three men are sitting and crouching in front of a forest scrub. The man in the middle is smoking tobacco in a long, cylindrical pipe. The two other men are portrayed with carved and painted lime spatulas. The spatulas are used to stir and bring to the mouth the mixture of lime and betel nut, a mild stimulant common throughout the Massim area, contained in purpose-made gourds.
