Te Puna: Maori Art from Te Tai Tokerau Northland
Deidre Sharon Brown, Ngarino Ellis
Reed, 2007 - Art, Maori - 160 pages
Te Puna - Maori Art from Te Tai Tokerau Northland gathers writing about the art of Te Tai Tokerau - carving, painting, weaving, architecture, ceramics and digital art - by leading art historians and curator. It discusses how Maori art was collected by museums and others, and argues that Te Tai Tokerau was the cradle for contemporary Maori art. Shorter essays focus on moko (tattoo) and waka building, and highlight artists such as Ralph Hotere, Shane Cotton and Kura Te Waru Rewiri.
