Papuasi is an umbrella term for the various indigenous peoples of New Guinea
The Asaro Mudmen have been living in Papua Nuova Guinea for more than a thousand years, but they were discovered only in 1980.
They used to cover their bodies with white mud for seeming spirits and scaring the enemies; but, because legends said that the mud from the Asaro river was poisonous, they used masks for their faces, covered with mud, decorating them with horns, huge eyes, or sideways mouths.
