It’s Whale season in the South Pacific right now, and these gentle, gigantic mammals are captivating the hearts of many!
This is my endeavour to present this shy yet powerful creature in different contemporary styles.

Mediums and material used:
Tapa: is made by beating the bark of the Tongan Mulberry tree for hours, until thin strips finally flatten and stretch out. These pieces are then joined together firmly to form a canvas like surface.
Tongo Ink: is made from the extracted  fluid of Mangrove bark. This fluid is boiled at various temperatures to get a variety of hues.
Soil Paint: The soil used as paint is found only in specific places in the ancient island of Eua and in the past, it was used to wash hair.
         Acrylic Paint.

Sizes and Price: On request
