Vlad Sokhin

Messi (Messe), New Ireland, Papua New Guinea

A boy stands near the entrance of Messi primary school. A board outside the school depicts the tools of the village's famous 'shark callers'. These are a 'larding' which is made of coconut shells and when the fishermen beat the surface of the sea mimics the sound of a school of fish thrashing on the surface of the water, thereby 'calling' nearby sharks. When a shark comes close, the fisherman ensnares it using a 'ka'saman', a propeller-shaped float with a noose of twisted vine looped through it.
