The picture below was posted on facebook, but I wonder if it is really a Fijian design from Cakakudrove because I have never ever seen a design like this. Perhaps it was made by a vavalagi having a go at painting on masi.
This striking Cakaudrove masi was acquired by a European collector in the 1870's. It was displayed a few years ago as part of an exhibition called 'Tapa: Barkcloth paintings from the Pacific' in Birmingham, U.K.. Many thanks to the Fijian Art Research Project for allowing us to access this Fijian heritage online. Has anyone seen a piece of masi like this here in Fiji?
