This Bilum was lovingly woven by artisan weaver Rosa Hofman, 47, lives with her husband and four children in Fanuifa, a small village in Goroka. She has an infectious laugh and wonderful sense of humour, she is very much a luminous spirit within her community. Rosa’s favourite pattern is the Skin Pig, a vibrant optical design.
