Product Detail

Long before Māori took up writing, carving recorded and communicated stories, ancestry and identity. This function can be seen in the elaborate patterns and designs which decorate meeting houses, storerooms, musical instruments, canoes, ceremonial items and weapons. This book includes many richly detailed photographs alongside concise and instructive texts intended to educate the reader about the art of recording Māori history through carving.
