    And a picture of a fish, just like the ones that turn up whenever I’m drawing something. Nice! http://blogs.archives.gov/prologue/wp-content/uploads/train.jpg

    Headhunters and diplomats?

    Sounds unusually familiar

    That’s a pretty horrible attempt to communicate with a primitive culture.   They have most likely never seen a plane from profile, and what the hell is up with drawing a suitcase.  Even if they could figure it out, how would that help the situation?

  4. a year later the Nagas would play a definitive role in reversing the Japanese advance into British India at the battle of Kohima…called the “Stalingrad of the East” by many historians. So…. i just think they were playing dumb when they picked up the ‘mericans

    This was such a good read.I love the drawing of what looks to me like when something lightweight falls from a height – that squiggly line in the lower left quadrant of that picture. I can imagine the pencil moving back and forth to make it. Humans and briefcases aren’t lightweight but I might still draw a falling trajectory that way for the concept of coming to a soft (non-lethal) landing after falling from a great height.

    @ sarah: squiggly line? Perhaps yes, perhaps not. I believe he has drawn only two straight lines originated from the profile plane, to show that a man and this mystery suitcase may have fallen in different places. I am not certain the other line means what you think, but then, who knows what a captive may do with a pencil…

    I am wondering if that sketch was trying to relay that he had lost or left his baggy in the mountains, and wanted the tribe help to find or fetch it.
