A face frozen in wood, protected now by museum walls, looks down on a changing culture in a changing world.
– Narrator Don Selwyn
For the Māori, art became the record of their beliefs. Without a written language, the artisan set down the history of his people, in wood, jade, song and dance. The Te Māori art exhibition is the beginning of a new era: a way to communicate to their young, and to the world community.
– Narrator Don Selwyn
