The striking true story of how carved panels from Taranaki – known as the Motunui epa – disappeared from the region in the early 1970s and later reappeared in Geneva is explored in Rachel Buchanan’s Te Motunui Epa. Museum Studies students, fans of mystery novels, or those who just enjoy a good read will find intrigue and delight in this book, which demonstrates how these carvings have changed practices and the display of taonga and delves into international law on the protection and repatriation of stolen cultural treasures.
