ROBERT TOMMY PAU, 'Chester', 2021, linocut on somerset velvet white 300gsm 100% cotton, 59.5 x 78.5 cm
"This is a portrait of Henry Chester. He believed in Islander self governance by setting up the Island Council in 1877. This was the direct result of the theocracy that the London Missionary Missionaries instill and install since 1871. Chester saw that the islands were well organize and instituted a civic government beside the church government that were already established."
