- Curator's comments
One of a series of thirteen drawings and two lithographs, most of which was purchased from the artist.
This drawing was done as an acknowledgement of the Museum of Mankind and the British Museum and of the Maori collections of which they are guardians.
In the artist's own words: The various symbols within each picture do not necessarily relate to specific events or people but rather in a general way to their essence and presence. Even the specific shapes and places are abstracted enough to allow you to make your own connections with them. The ideas you take from the drawings are your own.
