Blood puke

The common tradition of chewing on Areca nuts is practiced in Nusa Tengarra Timor (NTT).  It is similar to chewing tobacco, but chewing on the nuts produce a deep red color.  Hence, Nova indicates that is called 'blood puke' in Bahasa.  I have no idea if this street art is meant to reference this practice, but I really like this sketch that someone drew along the streets of Kupang.

About 1m tall piece of street art.  My working title is 'Blood Puke Vampire.'
