Elnguiy (Preserve)


Steven Kuweh is 31 years old and lives in Manus. He is unemployed and gets by making and selling art in Manus.  This is his first exhibition outside Manus.


The green snail is an identity emblem in Manus. It is used as bilas (decoration).  The drawing represents the importance of Manus history culture and environment. These symbols must be respected and preserved and taken with us on our journey to tomorrow, not lost in the spray of time.
