While visiting family in Los Angeles we enjoyed the Māori Tuko Iho (living legacy) exhibition at Venice beach.
The Māori artworks, feature more than 80 pieces of art using wood, bone, stone and flax mediums, handcrafted by students and teachers at New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute (NZMACI). which is based at Te Puia Rotorua.
Many of the Teachers and students we see on our guided tours at Te Puia in Rotorua New Zealand.
The exhibition is supported by an array of other art forms including kapa haka, in situ wood carving and tā moko (Māori tattoo) and runs from 23 October to 02 November 2017
