Ngahihi O Te Ra Bidois

Creator: Professional Speaker Ngahihi O Te Ra Bidois, wearing his manifesto on his face – a Ta Moko or traditional facial decoration of the New Zealand Maori. Purpose: A public declaration of his dedication to his identity as an indigenous Maori of New Zealand. Manifesto Source Website: http://ngahibidois.com/ Ta Moko: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C4%81_moko

Ta moko was kept alive by older women who lived in remote areas beyond the pale of European condemnation. In the 70s, young urbanized Maori in search of powerful symbols of ethnic identity rediscovered the art, and moko found a new generation of skin.

Artgazing - 52 Weeks of Art & Wine

Am I on a roll lately, or what? February is making up for my lack of posting in January, that's for sure. At work, we were planning an ad for a local magazine, and were trying to find pieces in the museum's collection to emphasize. One of my favorite options was this one, a Hei Tiki pendant from New Zealand, created by the Maori peoples. It is the most brilliant green (I'd describe it as a cloudy emerald color), and its eyes are made of haliotis (abalone) shell, which really shines. In New…
