Types of tukutuku designs
These diagrams show some of the most common tukutuku patterns and their names (although names vary from tribe to tribe). In more recent times, tukutuku panels have also included representational designs such as the kiwi and whare.
A few inspirational photo's from Maori Artists around New Zealand. Super inspiring to learn how to make the designs, what they mean, and how they fit together (especially in contemporary art). These are the contemporary artists we have been learning about and will continue to explore. 1. ROBYN KAHUKIWA 2. SANDY ADSETT 3. BUCK NIN 4. DARCY NICHOLAS 5. JOHN BEVAN FORD 6.
