A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Maori Carving, Victoria Square


“The poupou is the work of Christchurch master carver Riki Manuel and was created from a totara trunk given by a West Coast farmer. The main theme of the poupou is mahinga kai (food resources). It also depicts tipuna (ancestors) of the Ng?i Tahu-Waitaha people”. Source: Christchurch Library
