From Donald Crowe's Summer 1990 trip to Fiji: on top you see the interior of Fiji President's summer home -- notice the red phone! -- and a similar, recently made bark cloth; at bottom you see the house itself (at Somosomo, Taveuni) and a group of local artists (led by Fine Nailevu at left) who create patterns like the ones shown below. More details and photos are available in Professor Crowe's electronic article (Visual Mathematics, v. 3, n. 2, 2001) and joint paper with D. Nagy ("Cakaudrove-style masi kesa of Fiji", Ars Textrina 18, 119-155, 1992).
