An interesting piece by Bruce Shapiro
This type of sand drawing is done on the central islands of Vanuatu: mainly Maewo, Pentecost, Ambae and Ambrym. The narration is a bit difficult to understand but here a sand drawing of a sea turtle is shown, which indicates that a child is of the family associated with the sea turtle. After the initial grid is drawn, the artist should not lift his finger, and if he makes a mistake he has to rub it out and start again.
