The Melanesian Gallery is a wholesaler and retailer of genuine Solomon Islands artifacts.  They have been established since 1970 and export handicraft all over the world.

The partners of Melanesian Gallery, Sir Mariano Kelasi and Bruce Saunders have many years experience in the rich and diverse
handicrafts of the Solomon Islands.

The artifacts of the South Seas are very genuine. That is to say, they are worked with the simplest tools, often with none, and by hand only. Their materials are taken directly from nature, are generally living, and fashioned with small preparation - in most cases that of the water and the sun. The imagination brought to the work is fresh unaffected by the visual platitudes of the west.
