By Alex, Michael & Narise His double is an idealised picture that Steven has thought up and was made to be like a living thing. The image adds questioning to the story on whether Steven is insane and how is the state of his mind. The newspaper exaggerates everything in regards to the mysterious pot, making it seem as it is more exciting and to make more of a story out of it. Naming in the ‘Cannibal Pot’ draws in readers and makes a bigger fuss over it than necessary. In fact the pot actually has nothing to do with cannibals. Is mentioned by Steven Messenger when looking at the cave art She is also mentioned when jan and wouter meet her and jan gets married to her “The Abo kids from near the town were OK and clean enough, but the ones who come from the properties weren't the same…After school ( that is if they turned up at all) they’d disappear back into the bush where they came from. In my opinion it was better that way” Makes you question the mental state of Steven Messenger and his concern and interest in the ring It is mentioned in the end that Steven Messenger was looking for a ride by hitchhiking near his home to get away from the troubles at Midway Roadhouse. It is mentioned in the afterword that Steven Messengers dad was killed that year in a truck crash. This makes you wonder whether Steven Messenger knows that his dad has died and is just trying to believe that that event did not happen.
