Artist's Description

"Tapa Stretch" watercolor by Carlin Blahnik

Dive into the heart of Polynesian tradition with this painting that captures a Samoan woman crafting traditional tapa cloth inside her inviting fale home.

The making of tapa begins with removing bark from reed plants & soaking the inner bark in water to soften it.

The rhythmic beating of the mallet on a wooden anvil thins & stretches the softened bark.

The bark cloth is then set to dry under weighted rocks, as you see in this painting, to preserve its unique stretch.

Finally, the dried tapa cloth is painted with traditional geometrical designs.

The finished cloth is used to make ceremonial clothing, blankets, privacy walls & displayed as art.

Enrich your space with this unique art print that is certain to spark conversations about Pacific Island traditions & memorable travels.

Thank you for shopping CarlinArtWatercolor, I appreciate you!
