This Is A Phenomenal WWII Photograph Of Two (2) South Pacific Islander Men Holding Paddle Spears, Standing At The Edge Of The Ocean In Front Of A Palm Tree. This Photograph Is Part Of A Group Taken By My Grandfather, As Well As Some Others In His Unit, During The Pacific Campaign Of WWII. He Was Part Of The Engineering Corp And Would Go Into An Area To Set Up Infrastructure, Usually With The Seabees, Before The Allie Force Would Show Up En Mass. This Was Done Many Time Behind Enemy Lines Or In Areas That Had Not Been Secured. During Quite A Few Of These Missions They Ran Into The Indeginous People, Whom Were More Than Happy To See Them. My Grandfather Documented Many Of These Encounters With Photographs. This Is One Of Those Such Photos. I Do Not Know Which Island This Is From, Unfortunately. However, I Believe With Some Research The Spear Type Should Be Able To Be Narrowed Down To A Handfull Of Islands, If Not The Exact Island Tribe; Since These Are Not Your Ordinary Spears And Have A Crescent Moon Paddle Grip (Although These Would Not Be Considered Crescent Moons Most Likelty. They Usually Represent Dolphins Or Less Commonly Other Aquatic Animals Or Fish). The Photograph Is In Great Condition, With A Couple Of Mild Spots At The Upper Right Hand Quadrant And A Subtle Dog Ear At The Upper Right Hand Corner. It Measures Approximately 3 1/2'' Tall x 2 1/2'' Wide And Has Gorgeous Color And Excellent Detail And Depth. See The Attached Photos For Exact Item Details And Condition. These Pieces Are From A Smoke Free Home. If You Have Any Questions Or Concerns Or Would Like To See More Photos Of This Item, Please Do Not Hesitate To Contact Me.
