Rate this:

This spectacular collection of contemporary works from 32 Maori and 12 Northwest Coast artists will coincide with a new exhibition in the Spirit Wrestler Gallery in Vancouver in February 2006. Manawa explores the cross-cultural connection, including an affinity for weaving and wood sculpture that is common to both cultures.

Forty pieces of Maori art and 20 works of Northwest Coast art have been produced especially for this publication, including mixed media by Susan Point and wood sculptures by Dempsey Bob . Each artist has also contributed stories about their artworks. Beautifully designed and produced, Manawa is a must-have for lovers of aboriginal art and those interested in cross-cultural exchange. Accompanying the art is a text by distinguished Maori and Northwest Coast writers that sets the historical context.
