Glimpse on "The Fellowship of the Pinisi"
The picture book I wrote and illustrated by Dewi Tri Kusumah is about how our ancestors built the traditional boat.
Legend says that Pinisi got its strength from the collaboration of three villages, each contributed a distinctive expertise.
Three siblings in modern time rebuilt the Pinisi in their bedroom and set sail to conquer the ocean, until their mother told them to tidy up and go to bed.
Guess what they said?
The picture book won SKTAA second prize.
