King of Tonga

I read recently that on 4 th July the Coronation for the new King of Tonga  ,Tupou VI ,took place. This brought back memories of when I was in Tonga in April 2012. This was  only weeks after the reigning King , George Tupou V passed on 18th March 2012. The country was in mourning and metres and metres of purple fabric were stretched around the streets, on fences, houses, shops. I made this piece to commemorate that time in Tonga. It includes the purple colour, photos I took that were printed on paper and  momogamied ,and sea glass findings from the beaches.
