    • Contemporary Traditional Culture, part 2 " The Asmat Creation Story: Fumeripits creates People from Trees" By: dewen yu , January 31,2012 Period 4, Culture and Geography  Source: Caglayan, Ph.D., Emily, "The Asmat". In Helibrunn  Timeline of Art History. New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2000-, http://www.metromuseum.org/toah/hd/asma/hd_asma.htm  ( October 2004); and Mr. Ruben Meza,2012
    • According to Asmat tradition: " Fumeripits was the first being to exist on earth, and he also created the first men's ceremonial house called a jeu."
    • Fumeripits would spend his days dancing along the beach, but after awhile grew tired of being alone.
    • So he chopped down a number of trees carved them into human figures, and placed them inside the jeu.
    • However, since the sculptures were inanimate, Fumeripits was still unhappy. He then  decided to create a drum, and chopped down another tree, hollowed out the center, and stretched a piece of lizard skin over the top.
    • As he began to play the drum, the human figures miraculously came to life, their elbows came unstuck from their knees, and they began to dance.
    • This is how Fumeripits made people from trees. And the first people were Asmat.
