Product description


In April 1997, Hans Neleman discovered moko, the striking facial tattoo of the Maori and was permitted to capture and present images of this sacred art. This text presents a collection of portraits, assembled as a testament to the Maori heritage and culture. The plight of the mokomokai became a significant factor in engaging Maori support for this book; the barbarous and illicit trade in preserved heads of Maori ancestors. Maori are determined to retrieve these heads and lay them to rest. The project is dedicated to the return of all mokomokai,
