Foto të jashtëzakonshme  tregojnë një shef tribuje duke mbajtur në dorë mbetjet e njërit prej të parëve të tij janë publikuar kohët e fundit.

Pamjet vijnë nga një fshat i humbur në Papua Guinenë e Re. Fisi indigjen i ruante trupat e të vdekurve duke i tymosur dhe kjo gjë i mban në gjendje perfekte për rreth 100 vite.

Kjo praktikë tymosjeje nuk praktikohet më, por ky fis ruan ende disa trupa si një simbol i respektit më të lartë për paraardhësit.

The indigenous tribe, who live in a remote area of the Papuan central highlands, used to preserve their ancestors by smoking their bodies, which kept them in a near-perfect state for hundreds of years

The smoking mummification is no longer practiced, but the Dani tribes people still preserve a number of mummies as a symbol of their highest respect for their ancestors

The Dani tribe is also notorious for following the custom that if someone dies in the village such as the mummified tribe leader (pictured), then each of his female relatives will have a segment of their finger cut off

Every August the Dani hold mock battles with neighbouring tribes - the Lani and Yali peoples - to celebrate the fertility and welfare of the Papua province as well as upholding ancient traditions (pictured)

    Te ben pershtypje qe nuk e paskan unifikuar veshjen akoma. Do t’i duhen edhe nja 2 mije vjet te tjere deri sa te arrijne ne nje uniforme konsensuale…
