    The Lapita series honours the memory of Feu'u's friend and mentor, the late Professor Roger Green.

    The woodcuts are a series of three, influenced by Samoan Tapa traditions and Lapita pottery which date back 3000 years. 'Lapita Green', is inspired by the 3,500 year old piece of Lapita pottery known as the 'long nosed God', which was given to Professor Green more than 35 years ago in the Eastern Solomon Islands. 'Lapita Mulifanua' is the village in Samoa where Lapita shards were discovered some 30 years ago. 'Lapita Kone' is the area where the Lapita was discovered in Northern New Caledonia.
