Fantastic drawing Sep 20, 2008
Sandroing or sand drawing are geometric patterns done directly on to the ground with one or two fingers.It is used to transmit knowledge about natural phenomena,indigenous rituals,local history,farming techniques...

It's a unique tradition proclaimed in 2003 by Unesco Masterpiece of Humanity.

Vanuatu sand drawings are quite distinct from other forms of ground-based art because they are executed as cursive or continuous lines.

People can see a demonstration in Port Vila Museum.

It would seem the only way to preserve the drawings then is to photograph them!
