Fiji Masi, An Ancient Art in the New Millenium by Catherine Spicer and Rondo Me
This newly released book (2004), brings a
refreshing and illuminating perspective to
the most ancient of Fijian craft and art forms.
Here the reader will find a very clear, detailed
description of every step involved in the
manufacture of Fijian barkcloth.
The written text is liberally supplemented by
colour photographs of the people of
Vatulele Island as they demonstrate this
The writers also give detailed accounts of the
manufacture of the natural dyes used in stencilling
the cloth, as well as explaining the process of
kesakesa…. Stencilling the cloth. Again, colour
photographs are used to show the reader the
The second half of the book sets masi in its traditional
context and then continues on to talk about its
use and place in modern-day Fiji.
“The Masi is the greatest and marvellous book for the Fijian.
Masi is one of the valuable pieces in the Fijian tradition and culture.
Congratulation for the GREAT BOOK !!
You did a marvellous work for ALL of us.
You have highlighted a great piece of our tradition that is beginning to fade away.
I must say, most Fijians have no idea how the masi are made and how the ingredients of the paste are done. All the best to your next edition and hope you will find more that is hidden under the carpet !”
