Maori Art

I mentioned that Andrea and I went to the museum in Auckland… here are a few photos I took there. In particular, I’m uploading one at a high enough resolution that you can use it as a background if you like. It’s what’s on my screen now.

There are lots of interesting images used by the Maori in both woven and carved materials. These are some fine whakairo rakau (wood carvings), enjoy.
