Fijian magi magi

I was taken by the graphic design of these Fijian coconut fibre (magi magi) weavings wrapped around pillars. So was compelled to sketch them. Pronounced "mangi mangi" as Fijian sounds an n before some consonants. The fibre is course, very strong, and quite expensive. The colour is precisely burnt sienna - easy to watercolour! The two artists who do this work in Fiji were away so I didn't get to meet them.
