Legend has it that the Asaro were defeated in battle by a rival clan and, forced to flee, they hid in the Papuan river that bears their own name. There, they hid waiting for the twilight, before fleeing elsewhere. Once out of the river, their skins, usually dark, appeared whitish from the mud, thus frightening the rivals who had mistaken them for evil spirits. Since then, the Asaro of Papua New Guinea, the "mud men", in addition to sprinkling their body with river clay, began to model it by creating disturbing masks to show themselves even more terrifying. Here the visual art is declined in the art of war and, vice versa, this becomes the contingency of inspiration for new manifestations of art.

Studying the origin of these primitive dynamics Federica Moi reveals the communicative power of the human form in all its manifestations. Her research starts from the anthropological study of tradition and tribality: make-up, bodily deformations, masks with bestial features, are common traits of all the cultures of the world. The human being has never been satisfied with his own appearance, but has always shaped his body to take on a thousand forms, return to his own animal nature or create completely new, sacred, funny, frightening aesthetics.
