Exhibition Catalogue

Description:
Janet Evari has created an ancestral nioge (barkcloth painting). The Sahuote clan designs are a combination of dahoru’e, Ömie mountains; buboriano’e, beaks of the Papuan Hornbill; and sabu ahe, spots of the wood-boring grub. The border as well as the lines that run through the work are known as orriseegé or ‘pathways’ and provide a compositional framework for the designs.
