Samal Gravemaker

This is a Sama Badjao gravemarker used in the film "Bohe : Sons of the Waves". In the film, hustlers sneak and steal it from a woman who keeps it in her house as the only remembrance she has from her husband. The gravemarker is made from drift wood. It is a wooden boat with a male figure on top. This symbolizes the journey of the Sama Dilaut to the hereafter.
