Abstract Uwok, ein führender Mann aus Malingdam, entfernt sich die Barthaare mit einem Knickstab. Mit der Bruchstelle werden die Haare erfaßt und durch Strecken des Hölzchens eingeklemmt und ausgerissen.
Sitting on a slope below the settlement, Uwok, a leading man in Malingdam, removes the hair of his beard with a bent stick of Ulmacea wood. He puts the stick to the beard, stretches it, and pulls off the jammed hair. In this way he contours the whiskers rather well, whereas the rest of the shaving is done less properly. Carelessly Uwok leaves the hair pulled off on the ground.
