Fancy Bear Bag

Here’s another find from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum.

Bethany Beach 2009 - Ripley's Believe It Or Not Musuem - Fancy Bear Bag
Tribal Suspension Hook

Here’s how it’s described:

Tribal Suspension Hook
Believe It or Not!, this well-carved hook figure served as a cupboard, or warddrobe, in an aboriginal village in New Guinea! Called a suspension hook, it held food baskets or clothing safely under the rafters of a village home. The carved face of a revered ancestor protected both the good and the house itself from evil spirits.

Man. Forget carabiners and rope. Now THIS is a bear bag!

    But evil spirits do sound much more intimidating than bears.

    I’m totally packing that on my next backpack. I’ll hang it fro a tree, then hang the food to it. The bears won’t get the food, and (with the inclusion of the screaming, naked tribal dance I’ll be doing underneath) the crazies will stay away ‘cuz they’ll think I’m crazier!
