This person has been sent by his elders to collect Akul (mussel). He sets out to the mud flats in the thick scrub of the mangroves, or the open areas. To him the feeling is rewarding that his elders will enjoy a delicious delicacy. He also feels the spirits of elders before his time, as they are happy for him to look after the temples that hold the traditional knowledge of his culture. These spirits are shown on the top part of the print.
