unsung heroes of Papua New Guinea. Leaders in the community need to be inventive, creative and self-sufficient.
I grew up in Papua New Guinea. This toile shows four women I admire who work very hard to provide for their family. The scenes show gardening, weaving with coconut fronds and the hard work that goes into providing food and care and teaching the younger generation how to remain self-sufficient.

Thanks Aiko, Rhonda and Tina!
This is an impressive design, Karinka! Your admiration, love and respect for these wonderful women is expressed so well in your your lovely art work.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your correct usage of "every day." The palm tree is adorable as well.
Oh Su, your comment made my day! How cool that your family lived on Bougainville island. These women live on New Hanover island.
This is lovely in a low key and under-stated way - just like so much to do with women. My family lived on Bougainville Island for many years and these are very familiar sights - and in a matriarchal society. It is really nice to see such a refreshingly different take on the contest theme.
I saw one in the wild once, Chantal, that was pretty exciting! Still need to design a fabric with birds of paradise!
Please take me to Papua New Guinea to see birds of paradise!
