Artwork Detail Request a print

The masked figure in 'Alo Alo' wears the tuiga, a traditional Samoan headdress worn by a chief’s son or daughter during important ceremonies. Fatu Feu’u is a dedicated mentor and advocate of young Pacific Islanders. His works often emphasise basic values of respect and social obligation. ‘Alo’ is a respectful word for son or daughter, and Feu’u describes

this print as ‘a woman of high birth, high rank’. Feu’u made 'Alo Alo' at Ponsonby’s long-standing printmaking workshop, Muka Studios, where Tony Fomison also produced many prints.
