Ambrym is famous for it's wood carvings and in particular, the 'tam-tam'. This is a large 10-12ft high carved figure-head with a slot cut in the base. A villager told us they were used to send messages between villages by drumming on the trunk - three years ago, Digicel and Nokia took over the role!

Man blong magic are feared here on the island of Ambryn as they practice 'black magic'. Hard to believe from the tranquility of our anchorage in Ranon Bay. What it is to be alone!
