Boisa Island, a small island situated off the coast of New Guinea, is one of a group of islands that receives fresh water from the Sepik river as it flows into the Bismark Sea.

The motif for the sculpture is the form of housing found on Boisa Island, which is different from that of Kambaramba and the Sepik River region. As a result, the emphasis for this sculpture is engineering structure. The cantilever of the roof is one third of the span, this being the most efficient. The columns and main roof beams form a portal frame.
