One of Papua New Guinea's many tribes - 'the Mudmen' - have been highly feared by their adversaries through the centuries. Their warriors cover their skin with white mud and they wear large white masks made of clay. In an attack they would create smoke, and slowly and silently they would appear, creating intense fear and superstition among their enemies.
