Double leaf construction of a Pygmy leaf-hut is covered in large phrynium leaves making it more impervious to rain. The shelters are built in a couple of hours and stand approximately six feet high. They are a beehive-shaped frame of sticks by women who bend branches to create superstructures. They collect large leaves placing them overlapping like tiles on a roof. The forest hunting camps are about 10k apart, and 10K from where they string their nets to hunt in DR Congo.Buy This Image
