It shows the range of items carved from meeting houses to musical instruments, waka or ca...noes, storehouses, weapons and ceremonial items, such as boxes and staffs, and gives detailed information on the carving of wharenui or meeting houses - the epitome of the carver's art. Information is given on how to read and understand a carving, looking in depth at parts of carvings and what to look for in elements such as the head, arms and hands of figures and the surface patterns used. The patterns and body styles are described and accompanied by detailed photographs that make identification of the elements easy. This is part of a series of four books on aspects of Maori culture. The others are: Geothermal Treasures: Maori Living with Heat and Steam; Maori Weaving: The Art of Creating Maori Textiles; and Marae: The Heart of Maori Culture"--Publisher information.

            Sculptor Paul Dibble often works on a big scale and this book features those works, both private and public, that make an imposing statement. Covering works for the public domain, commissions for schools and pieces for private clients, this book takes the reader through the fasci...nating process of not only of the thinking and design of artworks, but also the practicalities of dealing with huge sculptures, some using hundreds of kilograms of bronze. The book culminates in what will probably be Dibble's most lasting work, the New Zealand Memorial in London.
