Sand Drawing at the National Cultural Centre

Sand Drawing, or sandroing in Bislama, is a traditional form of story telling in Vanuatu.  We had a chance to see it at the National Cultural Center in Port Vila.  As quote in Wikipedia, "it consists of a continuous meandering line on an imagined grid to produce a graceful, often symmetrical, composition of geometric patterns. The artist's implement is a single finger"

The start of the sand drawing

A grid to start

and then ...

a fish.

Tutorial time ...
