Along with its own language, each tribe has unique artistic expressions connected with its spiritual beliefs. Every tribe has its own social norms and spiritual beliefs. It is not uncommon for tribes to recognize higher power through various forms of art such as sculptures or drawings. Each artifact has a very specific use and helps connect them to the spiritual world.

Toto Isu is an example of an image to facilitate the spiritual connections. Also called as Musu Musu and Nguzu Nguzu, is the traditional figurehead sculpture which was placed at the tip of canoes in the Solomon Islands. Toto Isu was attached to the canoe’s prow at the waterline and it was served as a supernatural guardian, protecting the crew during the hazardous voyage and ensure the success if the expedition, fishing, or even the pursuit of enemy heads.

The earth first started off as one huge continent called Pangea. Pangea was surrounded by one giant body of water. Over the course of millions and millions of years, Pangea began to break off and separate. After millions of years of movement, that is why the earth has the formation that it currently has, with seven large continents. With an area of 41,105,000 square miles, the Atlantic Ocean is currently just a little over half the….
