A man in ceremonial dress rides a horse along the street

A colour image of a man in ceremonial dress and white body paint riding a brown horse along a town street during a festival. The horse's face and body is similarly painted. The street is lined by onlookers, and colourful bunting stretches between the lamp posts. This image was shot while filming 'Taem Bifo Taem Nao - Time Before Time Now' 1980: In December 1979, over 2000 people from all over Vanuatu travelled to Port Vila to take part in the first National Arts Festival. The festival, which covered a wide range of cultural activities, was arranged to help foster interest in the old ways and try to unite the people through their rich culture.

Postcard of Surfer Riding a Wave. ca. 1908-1910, SURF RIDING, HAWAII. The most popular of Hawaiian pastimes is surf swimming or heenalu. In this sport the swimmers use a light board made of koa or wiliwili. With these they swim out to sea, diving under the rollers which they meet, until they reach the outer line of breakers: then, lying flat on their boards, they balance themselves upon the forward slope of the highest breaker, and ride with the speed of a race horse toward the shore. Surf board swimming can be seen at Waikiki near Honolulu Featured Print
