Ground burrowing spider. Brenda Kesi has created an ancestral sihoti'e taliobame'e (design of the mud) known as woo'ohoe and representing the ground-burrowing spider just as she was taught by her mother Go'ovino. This design can be traced to the old Emate clan village of Enope which was abandoned due to the 1951 eruption of Huvaimo (Mt Lamington). Brenda recalls how before that her mother was taught this design by her mother, Munne. She explains how in the old days of making barkcloths the women had no plants so they would soak the barkcloth in mud, cut the desired pieces and then sew them onto the plain barkcloth. The contracting effects would result in various bold designs. The design was sewn with a bat-wing bone needle and a river reed was shredded to created the sewing thread. The Omie creation short tells of how the very first sihoti'e nioge (mud dyed barkcloth) was created by Suja, the first Omie woman and mother of the world, under instruction from Mina, the first Omie woman, after she experienced her first menstruation. Suja dyed the plain barkcloth in the volcanic clay at the River Uhojo at the base of the sacred Mount Obo. Suja wore the mud-dyed barkcloth during her menstartion and lived in seclusion in a small hut known as je'o jarwe for its duration.
