The “sulkae ” we use to collect this, instead of firewood, to make fire for our cooking back in Rotuma.
I was having quite a conversation with myself during lunch in an empty kitchen whereupon my gaze rested at this painting.
Does this palette illicit any emotional response from me? I asked myself. Sadly it fell flat on my face.
