Saparua map

With the ocean as a canvas and the island as an artwork we tried to capture the beauty and shape of the island in a minimalistic black and white print without roads, streets and other distractions.

Saparua is one of the Moluccan Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Every island has small villages so called “kampongs”. Our roots comes from the kampong called Ihamahu that's located on the island of Saparua.

In the 16th century the Moluccan Islands were a colony of Portugal and later on of the Netherlands. The influences of these countries are nowadays still visible. Portuguese words in the Moluccan language (Malay) and there are still Dutch VOC forts on the Moluccan Islands. Fort Duurstede is located on Saparua.
