Carved Histories: Rotorua Ngati Tarawhai Carving
Covering the Ngati Tarawhai carvers’ distinctive style from pre-European times to the present day, this account presents a vivid analysis of Maori woodcarving. As the most prolific school of their kind in New Zealand, the Ngati Tarawhaihave played a critical role in the development and survival of this particular art form. Spanning from the end of the New Zealand wars to the beginning of "tourist art," this chronicle explores their creations, outlining the relationships between the carvers and their Maori patrons. Biographies of Ngati Tarawhai artists and a list of all known carvings are also included. 450 pages. N° de ref. de la librería 1026877

Descripción de la librería: A small neighbourhood second-hand book shop for people who want to read books. Besides the books in the shop, our claim to fame is having a catalogued inventory offsite of more than 50,000 books that can be brought in or posted the next day. We are not a rare-and-collectable bookshop, instead having a bit of this, and a bit of that. While everything's catalogued, it's more fun to browse the shelves. So come in and say g'day.
