Thirty four Maori kuia - mothers, grandmothers, older relatives -
are illustrated in this book, in colour reproductions from the paintings
of Harry Sangl. All of the portraits were made from life. All of the
subjects wear honoured moko (chin and lip tattoo). Most of them were
of advanced age when painted and many have since passed away.
There can never again be a comprehensive painted-from-life collection
of portraits of Maoris bearing this unique facial decoration.
