Priceless tais

The tais exhibition on display at the Suai Media Space is like fireworks on textile. I highly recommend it. Also fascinating to see how much exchange and influence there is from other neighboring islands. The one featured above is a creation of Veronica Martins of Kamenassa, Suai, now in the collection of Friends of Suai.

Kamenassa was the center of Timor’s greatest rebellion against the Portuguese, in the 1720s.
