Waipoua Forest - Standing tall and strong as Maori warriors, New Zealand's kauri trees are a sight to behold. Once felled sustainably for boat materials and gum by the Maori, the kauri suffered huge deforestation at the hands of European settlers. Waipoua is one of the country's best-preserved pockets of kauri woodland. It's also home to its mightiest tree, the 2000-year-old Tane Mahuta, or "God of the Forest".

Portrait of a lady with a dog; Lavinia Fontana; M1956/3/1 on eHive
This portrait has recently been reattributed to Lavinia Fontana, who was much in demand as a portrait painter at the end of the sixteenth century. She trained alongside Agostino Carracci in her father Prospero's studio in Bologna, although she was forbidden to enrol in the Academy because of its focus on drawing from the nude.
