Beyond the Koru by Sandy Adsett, Māori artist (KX30701)
Medium: acrylic on canvas. Size: 48 x 36 inches. These three paintings [Beyond the Koru, Crosspoint, To the Point] focus on this important time of contact, the Maori with the indigenous artists of the Northwest Coast. Our folklore, designs and patterns — we are sharing with each other, and have such a similarity in the Earth Mother, Sky Father, Star Land and creation stories.
