 - Rauru: Tene Waitere, Maori Carving, Colonial History
Rauru: Tene Waitere, Maori Carving, Colonial History

Tene Waitere of Ngati Tarawhai (1854-1931) was the most innovative Maori carver of his time; his works reached global audiences decades before the globalization of culture became a fashionable topic. Rauru is the highlight of a famous anthropological museum in Germany. Hinemihi, the carved house featured in one section of this book, sheltered survivors of the Tarawera eruption in 1886 before being removed to the park of an English country house. The magnificent His carved Ta Moko panel is one of Te Papa the Museum of New Zealand's icons. Three out of four historic Maori meeting-houses located outside New Zealand were carved or partly carved by Waitere. The travels of his work tell us something about the interplay between empire and art, about what is made of history now. The combined perspectives of his descendants, of a leading contemporary carver, of a master photographer and a distinguished anthropologist and historian of Pacific art make this book unique as a dialogue as well as a revelation of great works of Maori art.

 - A Whakapapa of Tradition: One Hundred Years of Ngato Porou Carving, 1830-1930
A Whakapapa of Tradition: One Hundred Years of Ngato Porou Carving, 1830-1930

From the emergence of the chapel and the wharenui in the nineteenth century to the rejuvenation of carving by Apirana Ngata in the 1920s, Maori carving went through a rapid evolution from 1830 to 1930. Focusing on thirty meeting houses, Ngarino Ellis tells the story of Ngati Porou carving and a profound transformation in Maori art. Beginning around 1830, three previously dominant art traditions – waka taua (war canoes), pataka (decorated storehouses) and whare rangatira (chief’s houses) – declined and were replaced by whare karakia (churches), whare whakairo (decorated meeting houses) and wharekai (dining halls). Ellis examines how and why that fundamental transformation took place by exploring the Iwirakau School of carving, based in the Waiapu Valley on the East Coast of the North Island. What makes a tradition in Maori art? Ellis asks. How do traditions begin? Who decides this? Conversely, how and why do traditions cease? And what forces are at play which make some buildings acceptable and others not? Beautifully illustrated with new photography by Natalie Robertson, and drawing on the work of key scholars to make a new synthetic whole, this book will be a landmark volume in the history of writing about Maori art.

 - Maori Carving Illustrated
Maori Carving Illustrated

Maori carving is the writing of a people who never needed a written language. All the national conceptions of ancestor respect and allegiance, man's struggle to choose between good and evil, love of children, pride, suffering and defiance are there to be read by the initiated. First published in 1955, W. J. Phillipps' Maori Carving Illustrated is one of the few souces of information about the origins and meaning of the basic shapes and patterns in Maori carving. Using many photographs to illustrate his text, he discusses subjects such as tapu, the one-eyed figure, the three-fingered hand, spirals, decorative features, the lizard, carving on weapons and tools, wakahuia and carved houses. Now revised and updated, Maori Carving Illustrated remains an essential source of information for those wanting an introduction to the history and development of carving in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
