  1. Interesting text. One point of criticism: you list scientists by name but the ni-vanuatuan artists are nameless.

      Hi Wolfgang,
      Thanks for point out the anonymity of the artists.
      The anthropological literature on sandroings does not mention the names of the artists. The names of indigenous artists are rarely known as the designs are considered to belong to their culture, not the person.
      Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the artist in the National Museum in Port Villa.
      Peter
