The 'upper place', the sky, is the region where Morap, the creator figure, 'the one who dwells in abundance', lives together with the survivors of an ancient big flood of the Yupno river.
Morap made the whole three-layered 'world' and thus caused the rise of man.
The central point of reference is most usually the Yupno river (a), which is also the creator figure Morap. In this 'world' are situated the villages which are, as a rule, represented as fenced-in ovals.
