This book will appeal to those seeking an accessible pictorial guide to ancient Maori objects carved from wood, stone, pounamu (jade), bone, feathers and fibre. It contains the best selection of photographer Brian Brake's images, slanted toward those pieces that are widely recognised from the Te Maori exhibition, such as Uenuku or the Kaitaia lintel. The works are grouped by the different arts, with an explanation of how each was inspired by the gods in Maori mythology.
