She says there will be a number of pieces on display where some will be recognisable cultural and traditional items like tanoa, tabua, and war clubs but there will also be images of legends and stories and past practices which were done hundreds of years ago.

Hill says people will get to learn Fijian culture and heritage and will get to see how they can be inspired by their ancestors to create a contemporary piece of art.

The exhibition is free to visit and will be held at the Grand Pacific Hotel for the public from today till Sunday 13th October from 9 am – 6 pm.
