Fiji Tribal Bark Cloth Painting Or Tapa, Somoa Tonga 1970s For Sale

Fiji Tribal Bark Cloth Painting Or Tapa, Somoa Tonga 1970s

Excellent example of a tapa made in the Pacific Islands & Oceania.Excellent condition and well preserved over the years (most likely made in the 1970s). Will be rolled to be shipped (and with extra special care to preserve it). Let me know if you have any questions.

The cloth is known by a number of local names although the term tapa is international and understood throughout the islands that use the cloth. The word tapa is from Tahiti and the Cook Islands, where Captain Cook was the first European to collect it and introduce it to the rest of the world. In Tonga, tapa is known as ngatu, and here it is of great social importance to the islanders, often being given as gifts. In Samoa, the same cloth is called siapo, and in Niue it is hiapo. In Hawaiʻi, it is known as kapa. In Rotuma, a Polynesian island in the Fiji group, it is called ‘uha and in other Fiji islands it is called masi. In the Pitcairn islands it was called ahu. It is also known as tapia.
