Mr and Ms White in pictures – ‘Scary things’

mr_ms_white_46_Scary things

What was in their mind, when they carved these figures? – I’d like to ask, too.

*
Bagaimana keluargamu menerima budaya aku? – How does your family take (receive) my culture?
Jangan kuatir – disini budaya Cina… – Don’t worry – (we have) Chinese culture in here…
…dan budaya lokal – and local culture (* the last monolith erected figure comes from Sulawesi)
Takut! – (I’m) scared!
