Ihaka Whaanga - Kakahu inside out and upside down, because of the Pākeha preference to see taniko. Cracks me up now whenever I see Māori at graduation wearing their kākau like this.
Detail of Kaitaka paepaeroa (fine flax cloak with vertical weft rows and taniko borders) 1800-1840; Te Ati Awa iwi (tribe); muka (flax fibre), natural dye; On loan from David Pitt (DE000107/1)
Inspired by the painting below it (Tiki and Papaatuanuku) by Anahera (Alixene) Truly love the earthy colours of this piece
