PNG Jungle Canoe

This is a typical scene from up some of the Rivers in PNG. We were up the creek, but with a paddle this time 🙂 and in that creek was a Sago plantation where the tribespeople make their sago flour. The palms in the background are Sago palms.

The scene has a fair bit going on in it but it does grown on you after a while. It took me a couple of hours to work it up and I nearly threw it out a couple of times….but I kinda like it now!

  1. It’s a little smaller than your boat Mark, not as powerful either I bet. You’ve brought out the colour and detail nicely.

  2. They need a Hobie.
    Beautiful bit of craftsmanship.

    • A Hobie would take all the fun out of it for them Thomas!

      These dug outs go out in some amazing weather and distances I can assure you!

  3. not sure
