Toi Te Mana will be the first comprehensive survey of Māori art from the time of the tūpuna (ancestors) to the present day. The authors explore a wide field of art practice: raranga (plaiting), whatu (fine twining), tā moko (tattooing), whakairo rākau (wood carving), whakairo kōiwi (bone carving), whakairo kōhatu (stone carving), kahurangi ( jewellery), kākahu (clothing), whare (architecture), tuhituhi kōhatu (rock art), painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, installation, digital media and film. And they do so over a long time period – from the arrival of Pacific voyagers 800 years ago to contemporary artists in New Zealand and around the world today. This ambitious book will initiate a Māori art history written by Māori and for the world.
