Artwork Detail Request a print

This painting is part of a larger series that is called The Ufological Island of Samoa. ‘Ufological’ being a made up word (or portmanteau term) that combines UFO with mythological. Andy Leleisiu’ao imagines the former inhabitants of fictional Samoan villages - So’omuta, Vapula and Esula. They all existed in some imaginary past. He shows the villager’s lives as being filled with dramatic visions concerning both the future and the past. (Te Moananui a Kiwa, 2005)
