Huliman by bobfoto

Huliman

Tari is the land of the Huli and Hulimen and Huliwomen are interesting to say the least. The Huliman can take on many wives, they enjoy a good tribal war and they like to keep themselves pretty. Huliwomen on the other hand are magical creatures that according to the Huliman are good for "making relations" with but generally should be kept with a level of suspicion.

The Huliman, does not live with his wives, they live in small huts with their daughters and nieces while the Huliman sleeps with his kindred Hulimen in the Man Hut. In the Man Hut, they like to smoke, enjoy a joke, and plot their domination over the clan next door. They also enjoy pulling the leg of the occasional pig so that the Huliwoman will come running to see what is wrong with her pet. When she finds out that it is just her husband playing a prank to get her attention, at first there is slapping and anger and then there is slapping, laughing and "making relations".

Life is simple for the Huliman, but keeping oneself looking this pretty is tough work... carry on!

Can't imagine the daily morning routine to get looking that good. I'd comment about the separate huts for living but probably just get myself into trouble. :) Great portrait.

@geocacheking - Thanks Cameron, my little old point and shoot was a cracking camera, and it does kinda help when these guys like having their picture taken.

The separate huts is an interesting concept though...

I like the idea of being a mystical creature, but not sure about my husband summoning/wooing me by pulling on a pig's leg and wearing a union jack dart-end in his hat...?! He looks cool though, and certainly confident.
Looking forward to seeing more mountain-folk ...!

Great headdress,love the "Union Jack" on the front!!

Sounds similar to the term 'man cave'. I like the prettying up part! Wonderfully adorned!
November 1st, 2012  
He really is very "pretty" ! What a fabulous shot!

Great portrait of the Huliman and I love the Union Jack, too. Magnificent headdress.

I wouldn't want this guy to be mad at me. Fine photo.

Sounds like a life most men would envy

Colourful chap

Sounds like the ideal situation if you ask me!

@amandalomonaco - stay tuned, the story gets even more weird....

@houdiniem - ain't he just... I got a good photo of him holding the hands of one of his chums...

@filsie65 - Oh the Mystical Creature part gets more involved. The Huliman really is scared of her powers!

@carolmw @girlie - The Union Jack Dart was a cool addition. I have seen a classic photo from the 70s when tailor made cigarettes made an impact on the Highlands and a Huliman is wearing a pack of Marlboro Cigarettes as part of his headdress!

@tthompsonca - Manhaus meant different things in different parts of the Highlands in which you will find out in November!

@grammyn @rach_who - Ain't he just and I love the red dye on his nipples!

@rvwalker - They're well built the men from the Highlands, so too are the women!

@tigerdreamer - It could have its benefits...

@kjarn - The Huliwomen can get a bit jealous though...

Great shot of him!

Fabulous portrait, Jason. The story is so wonderful.

@alia_801 - Thanks Alia :)

@sangwann - Cheers Dione, thank you!
November 2nd, 2012  
@bobfoto totally missed that because there was so much else to look at!

@grammyn - was funny when I originally posted this on Flickr, the majority of my comments were nipple based.

Great portrait. (fav) Nah, I think separate residences is a great idea. Especially if they are responsible for cleaning up after themselves some.
;)

@hellcat - I did venture inside some manhouses and yeah, very clean inside. Dirt floor or even bamboo floor if lucky, easy to sweep.
November 3rd, 2012  
Well the key there is they're cleaning up after themselves.... You didn't find that sort of male environment a little fun?
November 3rd, 2012  
@bobfoto I guess that lets you know where your audience is coming from!
November 3rd, 2012  
@grammyn - it does.

@hellcat - the mystique that women were held in was really interesting.
November 3rd, 2012  
what a proud man! fantastic portrait! :)

@agentzuckerguss - Cheers Katia, he was a great guy to meet!
November 3rd, 2012  
Women are mysterious.... :)
November 3rd, 2012  
@hellcat - I hear there are books out there that debunk the myths....
November 3rd, 2012  
Aw. Those books would be wrong. To be fair, men hold their own mysterious qualities.
November 3rd, 2012  
Truely amazing!
