Stefanus Akanmore is a refugee from the Asmat lands in south-east West Papua. He is one of 43 Papuans who sought asylum in Australia after beaching their traditional canoe on Cape York Peninsula on 17 January 2006. He now uses his skill in traditional Asmat carving to educate and promote a free West Papua. He carved and decorated this complete sculpture in one day, and then hung a price tag of $5,000 on it.
