Carte B : ""Big head" mountain men (kai colo), probably from Namosi, wearing the huge wigs of human hair (ulumate) for which they were famous. These warriors were justifiaby feared by their coastal neighbours, who retaliated by stigmatising their name to mean "bushwhackers". The men pictured here wear only malo loincloths. The seated men wear pigs' tusks (bati ni vuaka). The standing man wears a civa pearl-shell and holds a rootstock club with a fibre-bound handle (waka vividrasa). (See Ewins 1982 pp.34-36)"
