The Tuvalu as named after the small Polynesian Island nation of Tuvalu. The beautiful waters surrounding Tuvalu are clear blue with the skies dancing above in mixtures of blue and purple. This beautiful island is one of the least visited islands of Polynesia. We decided to note it as a hidden treasure, just like this piece.
Fun Facts about Tuvalu:
- Tuvalu consists of three reef islands and six true atolls. Its small, scattered group of atolls have poor soil and a total land area of only about 26 square kilometres (less than 10 sq. mi) making it the fourth smallest country in the world.
- Tuvaluans are well known for their seafaring skills, with the Tuvalu Maritime Training Institute on Amatuku motu (island), Funafuti, providing training to approximately 120 marine cadets each year so that they have the skills necessary for employment as seafarers on merchant shipping.
- The only production of graphic artistry is the decoration of mats, dancing skirts, and fans with dyed fibers.
